Artist Constance Kraus
San Clemente, California, USA
I am very inspired by the human form, with it’s inherent perfection, beauty and flaws. A gesture captured in the image can convey volumes of emotion. In this piece, the woman is contemplative. She is grounded and full of strength. She is taking in all that she can.
This piece is the result of manipulating the ink on the plate with my hands and different mark-making tools. In the end, much of the ink was wiped away and I sort of sculpted with my hands and a cloth until this female form became very clear to me. My subject matter constantly evolves with the process. That feeling of intensive focus and creative flow is what draws me to this work.
