Jenny Stocker - Artist Statement

My studies and finished pieces are derived from direct observation.

As much as I try to achieve an accuracy in representation, I strive to imbue all my subjects with both spontaneity and personality. My work is my impression and interpretation of the figure or the subject. Recently, I have revived my interest in rendering botanical subjects with the same vitality and complexity I see in the models I draw from.

I have found that printmaking gives me the satisfaction of a complex process as it lends itself to my love of drawing. Most often, my chosen medium is the metal plate. With copper for etchings and aquatints and aluminum for lithography, I use line, tone, and color to create my small edition prints.
