I created this piece with a variety of carved linoleum blocks and cut out carved linoleum shapes. I printed with oil based inks and hand colored with oil sticks, oil pastels and oil paints. The inspiration for the this piece, which is part of a series, is carved and etched ancient Greek urns.

Getting to Know Andrea

Andrea Epstein layers shape, texture, color, and form as an ode to the abstract expressionist tradition. By combining various relief printing techniques such as collographs and linocuts, Andrea embarks on an unchartered journey of self-discovery and artistic expression. Serigraphy and monoprinting allow Andrea to achieve a variety of textures and colors unknown to paint. Her prints are literal representations of the creative process. She received a B.F.A. in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. in painting from the Yale School of Art.
