There is a deep chord in all of us that seeks to discover and understand who we are through memories histories and emotions. Pauline Jakobsberg’s prints draw upon family history to tell a story. Her images are quiet, reflective and intimate, confronting the highly charged subjects of personal and cultural memory. The artist pulls from written journals, sketches, family tales and recollections that inspire her to create a permanent impression with tenderness, caring and humanity, balanced with pathos and grief. Availing the full richness and variety of print media, she constructs poignant, visual narratives that perform a twofold function: to bear witness to her subjects and their stories by memorializing them, and also simultaneously to express our inability to fully grasp the past as history is turned into a visual reality.

With her hand-pulled prints, results of directly etching her drawings onto solarplates, Matina Marki Tillman uses the human figure as a platform to surpass simple representation. “Humanography,” her ongoing work of the last eight years, presents a range of intimate studies of people unfolding their moods and their personal fables within and beyond the boundaries of the print.
In “Humanography,” one can see the artist’s characteristic style that binds a delicate handling of light and shadow together with a strong sense of movement and often other elements of the performing arts. This work will be on display at the Washington Printmakers Gallery from December 2 to 27, 2015.
