Artist: Jill Marlar

intaglio printmaking

Artist’s Statement:

I am an Intaglio Printmaker using etched and aquatinted zinc plates printed on fine paper.

The images in my work are often glimpses into the past, recalling those experiences personal through recollection or family stories. Working from early to mid twentieth century photographs, I look to find ones that elicit memories or may even inspire their own story. Figurative images are sometimes ghosted using a combination of two found images, juxtaposing both to create a story for each work.
