UAMA is pleased to present this series of four etchings by Julia Jacquette. Born in 1964 in New York City, Jacquette received a BFA from Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, and an MFA from Hunter College, New York. To Kiss Your Lips was Jacquette’s first collaboration with Landfall Press, who said about the project: Jacquette’s luscious images of food serve as metaphors for bodily experience, sexual desire and cultural attitudes toward women and their cravings. The formal qualities of Jacquette’s work are as inviting as its imagery, imparting her Pop-like icons with a fetishistic appeal. In this suite of four etchings, each print presents a delectable dessert along with one of the words from the phrase “To Kiss Your Lips.”
This series of small, rotating presentations showcases the exceptional breadth and depth of the UAMA print collection. These selections offer focused consideration of a particularly significant artist or theme, and elucidate some of the most influential developments in the Western printmaking tradition.
