Margaret Van Patten

Margaret Van Patten is a printmaker who combines various intaglio techniques to create uniquely personal prints. Her technique includes drypoint, etching, and aquatint and mezzotint.

Making prints is very much a process oriented art form for her, and she uses this to her advantage by working directly on the surface of the plate and letting each mark respond to the previous mark. Using a wealth of diverse symbolism and metaphors (such as birds, insects, clothing, body parts, letters and numbers) Van Patten creates multiple layers of meaning.
