Etai Rogers-Fett (he/him) is a printmaker, judaica artist, and arts educator living on Piscataway and Nacotchtank land in the DMV. In his printmaking practice, Etai draws inspiration from Jewish craft traditions of papercutting, manuscript illumination, and calligraphy to create compositions that blend decorative and narrative imagery and explore letterforms as sculptural bodies. Etai plays with the genres of Jewish book arts in order to tell the stories of gender-expansive identities often deliberately obscured from this historical body of work—weaving together archival research, folktales, and speculative imagining to trace vibrant trans and queer Jewish lineages. Etai has recently been part of both Pyramid’s Studio Internship and Keyholder Residency programs. See more of Etai’s work at www.tsukunst.com.
“This class should be offered regularly. It was one of the better classes I have taken at Pyramid Atlantic.”
