Memory Palace, an exhibition of new intaglio prints and welded brass sculptures by Robin Cameron, invites an introspective journey into the mental mapping of the artist. The five prints on view, selected from a series of 32, were produced during a printmaking professorship at Cornell University in the spring of 2019. These works reflect Cameron’s artistic interests and teaching philosophy of incorporating several printmaking processes into each print. In this instance she’s etched into copper plates with the addition of watercolour monotype, bringing together needle fine lines with bold yet transparent colour.
