Frank Kaczmarek

Frank Kaczmarek was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1940. The son of a fashion designer, Frank began painting and drawing at an early age. Basically a self-taught artist, Frank has worked with various media including watercolor, etching, and silkscreen printing, specializing in sailing and nautical scenes and landscapes. His work is realistic, yet each image relies more on mood than on a specific place or object for its effect. An important aspect of Kaczmarek's work involves the interaction of the watercolors and the moistened paper. He utilizes the absorbent properties of the paper to create a relaxing and calming effect while the hard etched lines give a contrasting realism to each print. His etchings are in collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.

 

What is an Etching?

An etching is a technique in which the artist engraves a metal plate with the help of acid. It comes from a family of numerous printing techniques, some already known in the 15 th century in Europe, where the artist first makes some cuts in a wooden plate, then fills those cuts with inks and press it strongly against a piece of paper, creating a print. First devised to make cheap reproduction possible, it became in the 19th century an art by itself, with artists like Dürer, Rembrandt, Corot, Picasso, Dubuffet and many others who have spend long times mastering this difficult technique.
