The one etching looks like a drawing, really nice subtle features to the face, really really amazing portrait. I found out she is another Czech artist, oh has blonde hair, and some of her work centers on zen buddhism. Anyways her work is really good, Love the one titled sonnets/Shakespeare.

I really enjoy her illustrative images. They are really inspiring! When I searched images on google I found the image RHODODENDRON which I really enjoy... maybe because I like plant images so much. Any ways the link is:

On another note... I'm so pumped for the wood cut cult! I've been researching wood cut images to get an idea of ways to do them on inkteraction! and there is this one huge one that everyone should check out.... I'm pretty sure it's a woodcut....

i've wanted to learn woodcut my whole life!
this is exciting!

also, i love the subtle touches of color in these prints...

Kirky B said...

Leg,
thats a sick print you linked!

kate said...

These are amazing! unlike anything else i have looked at

Sarahhigley said...

I looked at a lot of her works, and I was very impressed, to say the least. I love that she is inspired by Shakespeare and his time period. I also love how she uses value to show a sense of light and how delicately she draws figures and especially faces.

Jaime said...

I thought that her work was very interesting and beautiful. Some of her prints were kind of creepy but in a good way. Also the detail is amazing I wish I could draw like that.

Amber said...

sweetness! love her stuff- especially her etchings and color lithos. very cool illustrations and characters- kinda creepy fairy-like creatures.

willison said...

very interesting and beautiful! her work kinda reminds me of david hochbaum's in a way. i'm a fan.

Allison Bayer said...

I like how Richeterova uses linear effects to flow you eye around the print. I'm also diggin her style, they are more then just boring portraits.

and damn, i'm super excited for this woodcut revolution.

Olivia said...

I am liking the subtle color, very nice! But I think all of our Seniors need a round of applause everything looked awesome and I was so proud to say I know you all! It was beautiful! Good work you all!

brat said...

leg that print you posted is so amazing! these prints by Richterova are pretty amazing as well...i love the selective use of color! im pretty excited about the wood cuts this summer!

zoe said...

these are awesome.. i really like the softness of the color she brings into her prints..

Cara said...

what an interesting collection of prints. I liked her use of blank space, especially in Little Prince. I'm also pretty excited that ill be able to get my printing fix this summer!

carly said...

Richterova has a wicked style - like kirky b said, i want to find out how she dabbles with color in specific areas. her work is very interesting, soft and somewhat creepy.

what the hell am i going to do without the shop of love in two weeks??

Kirky B said...

joel,
what email should I use to link you to the woodcut blog?

Bethany said...

These prints are insane! I am amazed my by the range of values.

Props to KB for creating the We Got Wood blog and for posting on here several times. You da man Kirky!

Alright I am done.

Erica said...

the color within the print really pops in the composition. sweetness!

ellen said...

i love all these prints. some good end-of-semester printmakers on the blog.

Mallory_Heesch said...

I love the subtle hints of color in "Queen Elizabeth Viewing The Head Of Mary Stuart"... it's such a cool print, I cant stop looking at it! It's also interesting that Marina Richterova leaves part of the print seemingly unfinished in areas where there isnt value or color added... the lines seem very expressive and sketch like (as is seen in Sonnets/W.Shakespeare-- notice the skeleton hands). Very cool.

Andrew Meyer said...

Bethany, I am going to send you spaghetti while you are in Italy.

I LOVE sammich hands! (You will find out more about this later.)

Sybil said...

TonY said...

SeeYa said...
