My “Icons” show features a new grouping of works I call mono-engravings, which focus on symbols, ornaments, images, and portraits of people I consider icons. The mono-engravings are engraved from a painted and drawn background of ink wash and charcoal. Each image is a unique one of one. I translated four of these mono-engravings into letterpress prints that will be available at the opening of ICONS. Letterpress prints have a more elegant, velvety finish because a relief plate inked with a roller is pressed into the paper leaving a subtle impression and lush finish. Signed editions of 250. $70 each.
