Description

Deborah Remington’s earliest intaglios reflected the ethos of abstract expressionism, stripping away the representational and focusing on the improvisational. Though she was only twenty-three when she created “Echos” she had been in the burgeoning Bay Area art scene since the age of sixteen when she graduated high school and enrolled in courses at the California School of Fine Arts. By 1953 she was one of the founders - and the only female - of The Six Gallery artist collective, and was forging ahead toward a new and untamed horizon.

In “Echos” the young artist explores intaglio methods within a small matrix, using lift-ground and a deep black ink, and the path of her creation shows strong and assured. As with much of her work from this time, a moody quality emerges from the plate as if to illustrate emotion rather than an idea, a common thread throughout her career.
