Artist Proof Intaglio Copper Etching Print; Dimensions: 8.25" x 11.25"
Bryn R. Gleason is a Chicago based Intaglio Printmaking Artist. After receiving her BFA from the University of Minnesota in 2013, she had her debut solo exhibition at the GreenPoint Gallery in New York. Gleason’s volunteer work with non-profit organizations that focus on art-based outreach for homeless and underprivileged youth, has greatly influenced the concepts in her work. Using photo-etching, Gleason’s siblings are represented in several of her prints, making her Artwork intensely personal, while yielding a universal emotional response. Supporting her concepts, Gleason’s print work demonstrates an impressive understanding of traditional and contemporary printmaking processes. Her use of both photographic and hand manipulated imagery, crafted on copper plates for intaglio printing, is uniquely experimental and skillfully executed. She often incorporates delicate and detailed images with aggressive and sporadic line work, resulting in an overall aesthetic that is dark, moody, and eerily captivating.
