     ELEGIES: A project in Print
     Exhibition: March 9 - April 20, 2013
     Reception: Saturday, March 9, 5-8 p.m.

The Irvine Fine Arts Center is pleased to present ELEGES: A project in Print, a solo exhibition of 10 prints made by Los Angeles-based artist Mara De Luca during her residency at the Fine Arts Center. For this work, twelve individual layers are mixed and matched to generate ten distinct images. De Luca first employed experimental intaglio processes such as aquatint, spit bite and soap ground on zinc plates to create the cloudy, dramatic lighting effects prevalent throughout her work. ELEGIES relates to De Luca's current work in painting presently on exhibition in CRUISE COLLECTION 2013 at the Luis de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles.
