Kamikaze Curiosity: Louisa Chase Prints 

Painter and printmaker Louisa Chase’73 (1951-2016) was engaged in a lifelong expedition to try and capture external images of an internal state. A productive and experimental printmaker, Chase worked with the who’s who of publishers and workshops; and was included in the foremost contemporary print exhibitions and publications of the period.  The selected works illustrate the evolution of the Chase’s distinct visual vocabulary and adeptness in the medium, giving insight into the artist’s enduring exploration, as she described, as a ‘kamikaze curiosity.’
