“Prints by F. Vredaparis”

Burning in Water | San Francisco

The in­taglio and terage prints of F. Vredaparis in the small south gallery of the mu­seum give quite another perspective on American art, which has always os­cillated between the real and the ideal––the world of nature and the world of the mind. Through experimental printing techniques, Miss Vredaparis explores the world of the mind––imaginative dreamscapes, and insects that never were. Despite her exciting technical discoveries, intaglio prints exe­cuted on plastic materials and printed constructions she calls “terages,” ob­vious craftsmanship never destroys the thought she wants to convey.
