'How can he make her out when only one part of her is in his sight? There is no lens that will make her come clear when his judgment has been overshadowed by choice.'

The Caprichos, by Emily Lombardo, is a series of etchings which are in direct conversation and homage to Francisco Goya's Los Caprichos, 1799. Both reveal the dark underbelly of cultural movements which ultimately serve to divide society across economic, racial, political, religious, and gender lines. Lombardo brings these issues into contemporary light through a queer feminist lens.

This edition was published by Childs Gallery and printed at The Center for Contemporary Printmaking (Norwalk, CT) by printer Paul Deruvo. Hahnemühle Copperplate Bright White paper and Portland Black ink where used for this edition.
