"Opal Ecker DeRuvo is a transfeminine transdisciplinary artist and collaborative printmaker. Using historic photo-processes, large scale image transfers onto architectural substrates, and laser imaging techniques (re-engineered from machine vision technology), their practice connects the materiality of photography with experiences of trans-embodiment.
"They began printmaking as an apprentice to a master printmaker at the age of 14 and received their BFA in printmaking from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. For 6 years following their BFA they worked as a collaborative printmaker at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk CT. They grew up in a family of darkroom photographers, during their MFA at Yale in the painting and printmaking department their work has come to investigate the origins of photography within the materials and history of printmaking."
