PAULINE JAKOBSBERG

Artist Statement

Pauline’s recycled handmade papers, inks and printmaking methods suit her goal in an effort to recreate the complexity of the past. Some of the works are quiet reflective and intimate. Her techniques of etching, collage and assemblage allow her to produce reflective as well as playful art. The need to tell a story whether from childhood as in the case of her garment images or family tales and sketches from written journals remind her of our inability to fully grasp the past as she turns history into a visual reality.

Biography

The hand pulled print has been Pauline Jakobsberg’s medium of expression for the last 33 years. She is co-founder of the Washington Printmakers Gallery and founder of the Graphic Workshop, an environmentally safe printmaking studio in Downtown Silver Spring, MD. Her works are in several private collections, most recently Shanghai and have been widely exhibited in the US and Europe, including two solo exhibitions in the Czech Republic.
