• pho•to•gra•vure

    An intaglio printmaking or photo-mechanical process whereby a copper plate is coated with a light-sensitive gelatin tissue which had been exposed to a film positive, and then etched.


For the last twelve years my focus as an artist has been photogravure; an intaglio printmaking technique having its origins in the mid-1800’s as one of the first ways to reproduce photographs for publication.  I appreciate the image details captured by this technique and am drawn by the velvety depth of the darks as they contrast with the lights.  I also enjoy the challenges of each step.  My intent is to hold the viewer for a moment, not allow him to pass over the familiar so quickly, and to compel him to note the visual significance of the subject.
