WORKS ON PAPER
Elizabeth Powell, of Iowa City, combines printmaking techniques including Intaglio, silkscreen and monotype. Powelllikes to think of her body of work as “Freudian figures.” The abstract shapes in each piece are created by drawing and redrawing things that she sees in life, including the female form, until they are barely recognizable. Powell references jewelry, wallpaper and other decorative arts as she creates statements about feminist issues.
