Matthew Calandra hard ground etching

Last year Matthew Calandra drew up nearly 70 portraits  as part of a Cicada Press residency he was invited to be part of.  The resulting body of works includes portraits of artists such as Ian Grant, Vernon Ah-Kee, Michael Kempson, Elisabeth Cummings and many more.  The entire series was exhibited at Gaffa Gallery to showcase the results of the residency.

Here is a little video that was shot from Matthew’s perspective while he was drawing up a portrait of Rafael Butron.  The camera was mounted to Matt’s head, so it’s a bit shaky at times.
