Intaglio prints are crisp and delicate, but the copper plate itself tells another story. Copper talks to paper, and couldn’t finish. 

An exploration of the nature and possibilities intaglio printmaking by juxtaposing copper plates and prints. Etching here is more than an imaging process but also a development of ideas. The work shows the visual interest of copper plates and its value as an art object.
