Face The Reality

Prints I love —2019

During my Watson Trip, I did a 2-week residency in Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, Venezia , where I produced these mezzotint prints.

It’s a group of five prints,and three of them form a mini collection

Face what reality?

I think this is my most “serious” connection with printmaking so far. In that amazing studio, I found my voice as a printmaker. When I left that studio behind (and graduate), I constantly try to find my way back.

And scuola di graphica gave that sense of home to me. Even it’s just a short residency; it makes me miss it even now (4+ years after the residency).

The sad story is, I have to face my own reality and accept that I (against my will?) chosen a path that leads me away from the print shop.
