ABOUT THE WORK

My work focuses a lot on shadows, and capturing that ephemeral quality that a shadow has. With these etchings I wanted to highlight the opposite to shadows and by using photography I exposed the trees to capture the light instead of the darkness.

Etching Process - Is created by exposing or scratching an image onto a metal plate. The plate is then immersed in acid and the exposed metal is ‘bitten’, producing incised lines. Stronger acid and longer exposure produce more deeply bitten lines. The resist is removed and ink applied to the sunken lines, but wiped from the surface. The plate is then placed against paper and passed through an printing press with great pressure to transfer the ink from the recessed lines. Sometimes ink may be left on the plate surface to provide a background tone. [ referenced from the Tate website ]
