This beautiful book illustrates Graves's entire graphic oeuvre and illuminates the artist's exacting concern for matters of form, material, and process.
In his essay, Thomas Padon offers an overview of Graves's printmaking activity and discusses the development of her complex visual language. In the interview with the author, Graves offers the first discussion of her specific interest in printmaking, her methodology, and the role of the medium in her overall oeuvre.
The second half of the book constitutes a catalogue Raisonne of Graves's graphic work, which comprises nearly 200 prints made at many of the leading printmaking workshops, including Tyler Graphics, Graphic studio, and 2RC Edizioni d'Arte.
