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.
