Soft Ground Etching

1997

Description

A Room of Ones Own´┐Ż is a soft-ground etching for which the artist received three awards in national and international juried shows in. Intaglio medium, the technique used for this piece, is a style in which the textures that are etched into the metal plate that hold the colored inks are obtained by pressing a cloth through a soft, waxy ground and then etching the exposed metal with acid in the textured pattern of the cloth.
