Robert Stackhouse (b. 1942) is known for his minimalist-styled, archetype-inspired sculptures, prints and watercolors. At Graphicstudio he worked with one of his frequent themes, that of the enclosing structure, the A-frame house or boat.
Encountering, Red Encounterings and Blue Encounterings further explore Stackhouse’s theme. The three prints employ the same image in different sizes and colors. The artist used spitbite and aquatint etching techniques to achieve the beautiful effects of tone in light and shadow, and to create the dripping quality that both adds to the aesthetic quality and suggests the action of water.
