gape

lithograph, 55 x 75cm

For this image I worked directly on a large lithographic stone, spontaneously combining and composing elements of form and texture from a single seashell that I turned over in my hand and looked at from multiple points of view. My approach was inspired by William Blake's words, "To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour."
