What is drypoint?

What is drypoint?

Printmaking technique belonging to Intaglio family, where an image is skillfully incised to a plate using a hard pointed object or "needle" of a sharp diamond or metal point. Copper was traditionally the plate but nowadays, zinc, plexiglas or acetate are commonly used. Like in etching, drypoint is a little bit easier for a drawing artist to master compared to engraving as the needle technique is closer to the use of a pencil than the burin in engraving.

Photography

Photography is the process of creating an image on light sensitive materials. The image is produced by using a camera, which has a lens that focuses on light either reflected or emitted from an object. These visible wavelengths are used to reproduce the image seen.

Art Informel

Art informel refers to gestural techniques and improvisatory methods common to abstract painting during the 1940s and 50s. It is a French term for the many styles that dominated these decades. Artists use this term because these styles were based on primarily informal techniques.

Happening

Happening is the term used to describes artistic, theatrical events held by artists of the 1950s and 60s. These events were usually staged in a gallery installation or planned environment which featured audience participation, lighting, sounds and slide projections. Later, performance art included the artists.
