2013 19 x 31 inches intaglio with stencils on Akatogashi paper
November 16 - December 30 2013
Chandler Fine Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Kumi Korf. In this current body of work the artist continues her experimentation with the intaglio printing process. Using various etching techniques, she create images on square copper plates and then prints them in different combinations. In some pieces she is transferring the images onto a translucent Japanese paper that is tissue thin and in others a heavyweight cotton rag paper. This series also includes the use of stencils to create organic shapes within the square format.
There are direct and indirect references to the landscape in all of her images. Before Kumi Korf begins the process of etching the copper plates, she makes drawings of the specific plants and trees and rivers and lakes that are part of the landscape in upstate New York where she lives. The spontaneous quality of the drawings is carried over into the prints which have the added complexity of multiple layers of color and shapes.
Ms. Korf was born in Tokyo, Japan. She earned her undergraduate degree in architecture from Tokyo University of Fine Arts and her graduate degree in printmaking from Cornell University. She lives with her husband in Ithaca, New York.
A new color catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
