In-progress hand engraving : Anneliese Narcissi
In-progress hand engraving, close up : Anneliese Narcissi
Artists are in a unique position when it comes to sharing those (sometimes frightening) dreams of the night, and hand engraving is a great medium for expression.
This detail from an in-progress work by Anneliese Narcissi, a current student at Emporia State University and an intern in Glendo's Artisan Alley, features imagery based in the dream world. The large plate measures approximately 12" long x 7.5" wide x 0.0625" (1/16") thick.
With basic outlines finished and a few areas of shade lines filled in, the plate serves up a design of multiple writhing tentacles emerging from somewhere out of frame (that will be revealed later!). A female, shown in perspective, looks up. The viewpoint is interesting in that the focus is not the countenance of this young woman but instead on the array of arms appearing above.
As Narcissi brings the plate closer to completion, you'll get a full glimpse into the fantastic scene — including the origin of the tentacles. Check back in the coming week to see the finished plate, plus an inked print made from the engraving. Thanks for sharing, Anneliese!
