Satellites for Redon
This semester I learned more about printmaking in my required intaglio class, taught by artist Lisa Hamilton. I enjoyed learning the process and different methods, but am not entirely happy with the work I produced in the class. BUT, now I feel more capable of revisiting the images and perhaps giving them a go again, this time with everything I learned this semester behind me instead of ahead.

The above three pictures are from my favorite printmaking project: collagraphs. It was cheap! Especially compared to buying zinc plates. I enjoyed this project because it felt very freeing. It was like playing. I just cut and pasted till I felt I had created something potentially interesting.

My Love, I Give
Her coffin became his cocoon.
Unfurl strange limbs,
tissue paper and pipe cleaner wings.
You’re held together by the craft of a child.
I don’t want to post multiple examples of her work, because you should go explore her website!
Being in school is not just stimulating because of the teachers I am studying with, but also because of the students on campus.
I pass Meghan’s work and studio regularly on my way to my locker, and I almost always feel compelled to pause to admire her paintings.
