Debra Luccio, Reach, 2019, monotype on Velin Arches paper, 59 x 42.5cm
(The Australian Ballet’s Marcus Morelli rehearsing Tim Harbour’s Filigree and Shadow)

Turning to the back page of a magazine last week I came across this stunning print by Debra Luccio.  Enthralled, I researched her and spent time perusing her website where I discovered this image is only one of a large selection of monotypes, drypoints and etchings from her exhibition ‘Dancing from the Dark, Looking for the Light‘.

I love looking at artists work on-line but in this case, by visiting Debra’s youtube channel, I was able to share in 2 of her past exhibitions and also ‘attend’ a monotype tutorial.  Seeing her working on a piece from start to finish and then viewing works hung in exhibiting galleries is a real treat, especially in this current climate of disconnection due to isolation.

In her body of work we are treated to an expert at capturing life as it is happening; presenting us with movement, passion and energy, and an incredible sense of drama.

Whether you are a printmaker or not, or any type of artist for that matter, I hope you find these works as captivating as I do.

      I’d like to say that this gives me something to work towards, but I’m realistic enough to know that my printing skills lie elsewhere – and I need to get back that type of printing sooner rather than later.
