"What draws me to this etching is its offbeat playfulness. By choosing to crop the columns of squares and orient them at an angle, Kyselica is giving life to a sort of imagery that we’re accustomed to perceiving as stagnant. The focus here is primarily on the square in the corner that has broken away from the pack, which maintains a dominant visual tension in the print. It is easy to imagine it clicking into its reserved square spot, but its isolation is what preserves the print’s level of interest."
