After traveling abroad in Asia and earning my BFA degree in Printmaking from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston Anna has joined the Ink Shop as our newest Printmaker Associate. She has immediately begun work for this show, Muse.
In Muse, Anna mAnnaeditates and questions the relationship between her ever-shifting present, and the mournful and joyous past through the series of 15-25 en plein air landscape intaglio prints. She pulls both inspiration and comfort from Rembrandt's Intaglio Landscapes, which were created specifically after his wife’s, death in 1642. Landscape as her subject matter, allows her to surrender to the renderings of light, with similar the delicate and even somber atmosphere reflective of Rembrandt’s prints.
