Freddie Elton: Dry Point Collagraphs
Thurs, Dec 1 – Sat, Dec 31
Opening Reception-Sat. Dec 3, 1-4

Dry point on cardboard plates involves only one mark-maker (a diamond tipped scribe) and a polyurethane covered sheet of cardboard, either hot or cold pressed. I found that hot-pressed worked best for my work. The challenge for me was to create mass and form, light and dark, without resorting to any other instruments, brushes or colored medium. While I began the work with completely abstract intentions, I found many suggestions of familiar creatures insinuating themselves into the plates. These familiar details seemed to me to have come from other life-forms, thus the title.
