Anna Pausch Lost in the Woods, etching

Anna Pausch | Muse  September 1 - October 27, 2017  CSMA Corridor
Reception Fri, Oct 6, 2017, 5-8pm  

In Muse, Anna Pausch meditates and questions the relationship between her ever-shifting present, and the mournful and joyous past through the series of 15-25 en plein air landscape intaglio prints. She pulls both inspiration and comfort from Rembrandt's Intaglio Landscapes, which were created specifically after his wife’s, death in 1642. Landscape as her subject matter, allows her to surrender to the renderings of light, with similar delicate and even somber atmosphere reflective of Rembrandt’s prints.
