“People can experience a feeling of solitude in the city amidst others or the country in nature. In my work there are few to no people. Attention to detail, focusing in on a significant part of a scene, especially in the etchings, helps the viewer to slow down, to look at the pieces and create their own solitude.” -Prosia

 “When you stand in front of DeAnn Prosia’s etchings, sometimes you long for a magnifying glass. Her views of the city are so finely drawn and rich in detail that the first fleeting glance is hardly enough to grasp it all.” – Martina Koch
