  • Catalogue Essay

    Intaglio Construction is a process employed by Richard Serra in his Hreppholar series of 1991 (47.60 - 47.67). The process required that the intaglio plate be deeply etched in order to create texture and therefore retain a large quantity of ink. Next, in order to fulfill the artist's desire to give the prints more mass, paper heavier than the support sheet was cut to the shape of the image area. Edges of this sheet were shaved for a smooth transition. The entire assembly was finally run through the press while printing and lamination were simultaneously taking place.
