Etching techniques have been the focus of Silva Usta’s work in recent years. The artist experiments confidently and enthusiastically, rejoicing in the endless possibilities provided by this artistic technique. Her works are a testimony to the ease and freedom with which she approaches both subjects and the process of creation itself. She avails herself of all kinds of media: traditional paper (Canson, Velin, Fabriano), as well as coloured or textured surfaces and a plethora of rare materials hunted out during her travels.
