Sittings by Bobbi Salvör Menuez

A new collection of etchings by India Salvör Menuez. Published by Open Corner and printed by Katsumi Suzuki, the prints were each made in single sittings, where Menuez drew their subject directly onto the copper plate using etching needles– those “twisted rods of metal, sharp on both ends, a gorgeous weapon” (India Salvör Menuez). Each print was then traditionally printed using the chine-collé technique. The portraits, all made in 2017, capture an immediate intimacy between Menuez and their close friends. Citing various locations, such as Landmark on Lafayette, a stone bench in the Cloisters, a lake house in Maine as the setting for these sittings, Menuez strips away the environment surrounding the figures to reveal the direct relationship between subject and artist. Please join us for an opening reception on February 16 to celebrate Menuez’s first solo exhibition.
