Description

An early print by the artist who at the time was just starting a career in fine art. Patricia deGorgoza traveled to France to study at Atelier 17 not long after graduation. Only twenty-two when she created this mixed technique intaglio, its clean lines and carefully plotted textures make it something akin to a more seasoned artist’s work, and belies her inherent knowledge of composition and form, which would easily translate into her later work in sculpture. This piece, as with her three dimensional oeuvre, borrows from the natural shapes of nature.

Layered textures and broken geometrical shapes display the complex beauty in artistic experimentation, the theory the Atelier 17 was based on. DeGorgoza worked at the Atelier in Paris in the mid 1950s through 1960, and went on to teach extensively in both printmaking and sculpture.
