microcosmos




















softground & drypoint etching, plate: 20cm diameter, paper: 28 x 38cm

Here are some individual images of the series of etchings from the exhibit I mentioned in the last post, there are 18 prints which come from 7 copper plates that I rotated and printed in different colours to represent my experience of observation - the way a single scene or object can change depending on external factors such as time of day, or internal factors such as state of mind. Each image is a small universe that I have imagined based on objects such as banksia seedpods, sponges and various corals that I either held in my hand or looked at under the microscope. As always I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!
