With swelling lines and precise flecks, Andrew Raftery uses the age-old technique of copper-plate engraving to create thoroughly contemporary scenes. In his series of five prints, “Open House,” the artist depicts a range of couples and families viewing a house for sale. These prints are striking for both the exacting process through which they were created--it took Mr. Raftery over six years to conceptualize and complete the series--and their subject matter, which avoids the dramatic in favor of a detailed interpretation of everyday life. The exhibition includes architectural models, figure models, and over fifty working drawings. The result is an exquisitely detailed commentary on contemporary definitions of home, family, and interpersonal relations.
