Press Release for web.jpg

Press Release, © Carol Wax, 2017, Mezzotint engraving, Image: 15 x 24 inches

My interest in outdated machinery often considers the relationship between technology and the evolution of language. Do words read on a screen have the same meaning, credibility, or staying power as words typed, handwritten, or carved in stone?  If not, how does the medium alter the message, and what impact does context have on this transformation? These are some of the questions that, along with current events, inspired my mezzotint engraving Press Release

 

PUBLISHED BY THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has published four editions of my relief intaglio prints.  These limited edition prints were commissioned for sale exclusively through the Museum Store for collectors interested in purchasing fine art as gifts for the holidays. Because availability of limited editions is subject to change, orders can't be placed on-line with the Museum but may be placed by calling The Met's Mezzanine Gallery at 212-570-3767. The Met is also now offering the prints for sale through Artspace.com.

OTHER NEW PRINTS

I'm pleased to announce the publication of four new prints.  My mezzotints frequently include some burin engraving, but these miniature format engravings are my first executed entirely with the burin.  The images were inspired by my graceful Weimaraner, the small 17th century caricature etchings of Jacques Callot, and my love of calligraphic gestures. 

Reflect, Repose, Rejoice, Refresh, 2017, Burin engravings, Each image: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches

The prints, published separately, are printed on 7 1/2 x 6-inch sheets of German Etching paper
