Speak No Evil Intaglio Print

This dark and foreboding print is the result of multiple print making classes. I had developed a theme of using strictly line work for my subjects which creates a large area of negative space in the composition and draws the eye of the viewer inwards. I started letting my subjects break borders within a composition which, again, draws the eye inwards towards the subject. In the making of this print I used a combination of scrapping and burnishing the zinc plate after using an aquatint method to create the subtle lights and darks that are present throughout the piece.
