Astra Velum at Oregon State University’s Fairbanks Gallery


Beauty is only skin deep. But ah! me; freckles go to the bone.

~Mark Twain

Astra Velum, an exhibition of photogravures by Fritz Liedtke, finds beauty in what many view as imperfection, exploring faces filled with freckles and scars. In these works Liedtke finds an exquisite gorgeousness, as he says, “overlaid upon us like a thin veil of stars.”

Liedtke’s Astra Velum is a series of photogravures: intaglio prints created in a printmaking studio. These moody, luminescent prints truly must be seen to be appreciated. This show includes new work in the series, not shown before.
