John Joseph Costello ’18

Drawing is an activity that encourages reflection on fleeting things. At least for me, It is a time for slowness. When I go out to draw, I am satisfying an urge to capture an awe-dread for the density of our world. It is a pleasure to drain time away making these things. When applying those drawings to making prints, I am often posed with a world of material possibilities and distractions. The tricky part is not thinking too much. For that reason, intaglio etching is my antidote for indecisiveness. Every step in it’s process involves some odd finesse. It leads me to a more narrow desire for what I want in an image.
