Happy Birthday: Barbara Tisserat

Barbara Tisserat was a contemporary printmaking and professor. 

I love these pieces of hers. The balance of the ghostly prints and gestural drawing is beautiful and rich.

“[in printmaking] Your drawing is always reversed…That’s one step away from where it was, so there's always an element of risk. Most characteristic of lithography, you make an error with the consistency of the ink or the number of rolls, it’s just very unforgiving. There’s an element of tension the process provides.” ~Barbara Tisserat
