Thrilled to be announcing the exhibition Loved to Death, the culmination of my collaborative work with Polly Morwood including etchings with embroidery and chine collé etching collages. Opening September 7th at Leona Gallery on East 12th Street in Austin, Texas.
Loved To Death is an exhibition of collaborative works on paper created over the past year by Annalise Gratovich and Polly Morwood. Utilizing copper plate etchings and embroidery, each handmade piece was pulled from a manual printing press in the Flatbed Press printshop of East Austin and completed in each artist’s respective studio. This new body of work explores innocence and tragedy, desire and sexuality, femininity and violence, and the boundaries in-between.
