Tauba Auerbach created Plate Distortion III while working with printer Renee Bott to find a way to fold a copper plate.

Description

For over a decade, Tauba Auerbach has explored systems of representation and three-dimensional space in her prints. Plate Distortion III belongs to a series that she created by folding and bending a thin sheet of copper foil covered in grainy aquatint. The material was then affixed to a sturdier plate and printed, so that the effects of Auerbach’s manipulation became the image itself, referencing the history and experimental potential of printmaking materials and tools.
