Drypoint Prints by Angie Hoffmeister

December 5, 2011

I’m in love with these stunning drypoint prints by Düsseldorf-based artist Angie Hoffmeister. Drypoint is a printmaking technique in the intaglio family where images are etched onto a plate using a sharp metal or diamond point. Give anything some extra eyes and I’m usually a fan, but there’s also something about using a more traditional and laborious printmaking technique to make such intriguing imagery that I really respect.
