I wish to tell the story of the grotesque human condition that is a result of modern existential dread by rejecting an objective reality to portray strong subjective emotions that take over the subject in question. Through different mediums, I will be able to show a range of emotions that are created by these processes. While I am using various media I am focusing on printmaking as my main medium to execute this story. Printmaking has this innate violence within its processes that I want to include within my work. Emotions aren’t easy or clean but are loud and violent. Intaglio, one of the main print processes I will be using, has this innate violence within its process that shows in the final product. To create an image through intaglio you take a needle to scratch the image into the metal plate and place it in acid to get a rough and gruesome depiction. Through printmaking, I will be able to portray the twisted emotions I want to achieve throughout my work.
