dc.description.abstract This project chronicles my explorations of the human figure in intaglio and relief printmaking and in the medium of artists' books. I had very little experience in the field of printmaking prior to my acceptance into the Masters program at Ball State University. I found intaglio, or etching into a metal plate, stimulating and exciting because there are very few limitations in terms of what I can do with this medium. I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in drawing from SUNY Fredonia. Creating artwork in the printmaking medium has allowed my drawing skills to continue to grow and provided a variety of new technical possibilities. I choose to work with the figure because it is an important subject for an artist to study in order to learn to draw. Since all humans share the same basic structure, it is something that everyone should relate to. It is also something that translates into every possible medium, from cave drawings to fashion design. Many of the artists I have studied, such as Albrecht Durer, and Francisco Goya, worked with the figure in printmaking. Their work provided inspiration while I pursued my own work in this field.
