Gillian Garnica is a printmaker specialising in intaglio methods. Her work is about paring down line and form to a minimum in order to create a quiet yet powerful presence. She seeks out chance compositions in the world, reducing structures to their most basic, as if discovering a found drawing. It is this distillation that interests her most and the indirect nature of etching lends itself perfectly to this Chinese whispering effect.
“I am drawn to etching because of the alchemy of the medium. I embrace the fact that this process makes you slow down, and that you never quite know what you are going to get until the plate is printed.“
