Printmaking

Georgia Ryan

Through printmaking I have carved intimate compositions of the interior structures of abandoned houses. These houses could be anyone’s. 

Each design contains mark-making that shows elements of these spaces as cracked, deteriorated, and generally falling apart. My intention is to use these interiors to comment on and connect to the multitude of emotions experienced from the trauma of feeling abandoned due to the neglect of a parent. Influential artists include: Thea Proctor and Elizabeth Catlett.
