February Show: Au Naturel - Gravure by Jorge Tristani

"I have an intrinsic affinity for shapes and forms. They speak much louder to me than words; they captivate me. Some exist only in my mind, but more often than not I find myself entranced by the lines I encounter in the natural world. I love to roam and allow myself to encounter the shapes and angles and contours of the world, to allow them to inscribe themselves upon my eye."
--Jorge Tristani
