Trained as a painter, printmaker and sculptor, Philadelphia artist Ed McHugh has recently completed a group of large scale etchings combined with monoprinting. Each work is unique, transcending the concept of a traditional edition series.
The final prints consist of different matrixes/grids which he uses to make aquatints or open bite etchings. The plates are then printed over monoprints or hand colored with iron oxide after printing. This unique process adds depth, movement, and color.
The C.R. Ettinger Studio Gallery features exhibitions of prints and printmaking related works. The gallery has irregular hours (usually open from noon till 6:00 Monday through Friday), but always best to contact before visiting or take your chances. Also open by appointment 7 days a week.
