IN THE MEDIA
"AN OPEN BOOK"
in Printmaking Today Magazine, September 2020
Dr. Sarah Bodman opens up the generous narrative spaces in the tactile artists' books by Katerina Kyselica that demand to be handled.
"What draws me to this etching is its offbeat playfulness. By choosing to crop the columns of squares and orient them at an angle, Kyselica is giving life to a sort of imagery that we’re accustomed to perceiving as stagnant. The focus here is primarily on the square in the corner that has broken away from the pack, which maintains a dominant visual tension in the print. It is easy to imagine it clicking into its reserved square spot, but its isolation is what preserves the print’s level of interest."
