Description

Atelier 17 printmaker Terry Haass did this color intaglio using scraping of the plate as well as open bite etching. The artist applied the colors in a single printing using different density rollers to apply the inks and letting the viscosities of the inks blend when printed. Haass was able to create chromatic works without aquatint using, etching with varnish resists and scraping.

From a series of prints created for the portfolio "Nexus", a series of 7 prints, that was co-published by Madeleine LacouriƩre in Paris; Bjerke Galerie, Oslo; Sylvan Cole, Jr, New York and Edizioni Scheiwiller in Milan.
