Print Closeup: Terrell James, Untitled IV and VII

Terrell James’ etchings read like a catalog of  her techniques, each a unique excavation of her metal plates. Blasted landscapes, errant ravines, acne craters, surround plateaus and pockmarked surfaces, wiped clean during the intaglio printing process. The accumulation of processes–line etch, aquatint, sugar lift, drypoint, and burnishing–enunciate the depth of the etch in the final state of the prints. The details in these art works are best viewed in “View full size” mode on this blog.
