Robert Stackhouse is known for his minimalist-styled, archetype-inspired sculptures, prints and watercolors. At Graphicstudio he worked with one of his frequent themes, that of the enclosing structure, the A-frame house or boat.
The mixed media piece Immersed combines techniques of printmaking with sculpture. A copper plate was etched with the artist's image and then very deeply bitten with acid, and patinated, to create a bas-relief print on the plate itself. Immersed is evocative of the sea, of age, of discovery, of ancient archetypal images that still resonate today.
Encountering, Red Encounterings and Blue Encounterings further explore Stackhouse's theme. The three prints employ the same image in diferent sizes and colors. The artist used spitbite and aquatint etching techniques to achieve the beautiful effects of tone in light and shadow, and to create the dripping quality that both adds to the aesthetic quality and suggests the action of water.
