Pieces of Me
20cm x 20cm hand-pulled copper etching print, unframed.
This work depicts myself and my two children – layered, individual, slightly confusing at times but interlinked. My children were once a piece of me, and even now that they are each their own person, they are still a part of me that I watch grow and change.
The plate is handmade, inked up by hand using Gamblin brand etching ink and printed on Fabriano Rosaspina 280gsm paper using a traditional hand turned etching press. This print version is the second etch state for this work - First state linework, Second state aquatint.
As each print is individually inked and pulled only once by hand in my studio, the results always vary minutely and each print, whilst part of an edition set, is unique.
Image size 20 x 20cm, paper size 26 x 29cm. Limited to just 20 archival prints.
