Manneken Press publishes two new intaglio editions by Mary Judge.
Mary Judge's new works created at Manneken Press are inspired by stained glass, flowers, and other natural forms, and evoke order in their symmetrical designs.
The artist writes:
"I have developed an intuitive sense of proportion in my current abstract works. Abstraction to me is drawing out and reducing. My images are figurative, that is, they have a thing-ness, an object-ness that pure abstract forms don't have. They express a state of being rather than pure non-objectivity".
Reminiscent of her current "Pop-flowers" drawings, each print is a color aquatint printed from three copper plates, layered with painterly effects achieved with the use of soap-ground.
