Amy young is a print maker here at CSULB majoring in print making and about to graduate this semester.She enjoys gardening at her house in Costa Mesa, she finds it very relaxing. Her focus on printmaking shows her attention to detail,and she spoke about how she used to want to be a graphic designer.
Her printmaking consisted of different types of ways to create her art, which I found really interesting. I learned that there are multiple ways of printmaking, and the ones she uses are intaglio, serigraphy, mono print,lithography, and relief. She uses all these techniques but explained how she used Lithography to make darker lines by soaking the metal with acid.
Her art depicts crows, and she says she that she believes they have a different perspective than what people see, and she says that it is that reason that she chose it as her main art in her show. She spoke about how she would put herself in a new perspective like a crow and by doing this she could look at anything different like California or even her home. She also compared her art journey to crows because it resembles how the crow will nest once it finds the right location, just how it was for her to find printmaking.
Overall, her artwork had a lot of detail in it and I find that the techniques used are amazing. Most of her art was in black and white, and i was able to see each carve and line that was used to create her crows. I also enjoyed what the crows represented, it shows how she is motivated and how that motivation can create beauty.
