Marina Adams | Etchings & Aquatints

Posted 30.04.19

For the aquatints,“I utilized both sugarlift and spitbite aquatints in these prints, creating rich, dense, flat shapes as well as textured surfaces and brushmarks. Then we began to proof them, experimenting with different colored inks, both opaque and transparent. After the initial proof, I began to see the possibilities of working on other plates with the intention of overlaying one on top of the other, playing with combinations of drawing, color and touch.”– Marina Adams

John Zurier | October Notes

Posted 18.09.17

“What I like about etching is that it is a mental and physical construction involving both a direct and an indirect process. And there is nothing like an etched line. It carries an authority, presence and weight all its own. Even haphazard incidental lines, random scratches, and the most delicate wavering marks remain with clarity.”
– John Zurier

John Zurier | Summer Book

John Zurier | Etchings

Posted 18.06.16

Zurier effortlessly translates his artistic practice as a painter from canvas to copper plate to make the very process of printmaking visible: The marks in the plate, executed by brush or needle, become evident; the force with which the paper is pressed into the indentations is almost palpable. The three-dimensionality of ink sitting on paper, the rich texture of the surfaces, the physical material at hand become the topic of a meditation on color and surface.
