“There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.”
― Pablo Picasso

print from Printmaking Revolution by Aaron Noble

This print makes me want to build an etching press and do something like this…

It has an abstraction that just approaches recognition and than violently backs away from it.

i’m certain I see a robot head, and then I don’t… I see long blonde hair, and then I don’t. Rotating it adds to the effect.

This from four pages into Part Two Intaglio, Printmaking Revolution by Dwight Pogue.
