The Figure in Ballet – Drypoint and Gravure by Brian Giza
14 x 11"
12 x 15.5"
Brian Giza is a former dancer and current balletomane. His elegant and monochromatic prints focus on portraits, nudes, and the environment of the ballet. Giza is an expert drafts person who takes his plates to rehearsals and dressing rooms to work on them directly. He will produce several plates in one drawing session, considering some of them “sketches” and print only the one he considers successful. The resulting images exude an immediacy, intimacy and refinement comparable to old Master drawings.
