Voyages: Impressions in Printmaking
Quenby M. Bucklaew is a printmaker currently residing in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. She holds a BFA in illustration from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Quenby continued her printmaking studies in Tucson, Arizona, where she was a member of the Arizona Print Group, before relocating to Boston. Her work has been exhibited in Arizona, Connecticut and Massachusetts, and resides in the permanent collections of Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in France as well as the Oriahavo Gallery of Art in Bulgaria.
Printmaking enables the artist to engage in progressive experimentation like few other mediums. As such, my work often explores variations on a visual theme in order to capture just the right mood, or to reflect our own changing perspectives. This collection of work is inspired by travel, encompassing both journeys made and places lived. In pursuit of a faithful depiction, however, I never shy from a slightly abstracted treatment if effective in conveying the emotional subtleties. I primarily work with etching and, in recent years, have focused on various non-acid methods, including woodbcut, linocut, collagraph, and solar plate, in some instances combining different matrices to achieve the effect I desire. – Quenby
