This is the only entirely etching that is going to be in my BFA show.
It had a mezzotint background, but that plate made the image extremely dark, and I was unhappy with it.
I like the lightness of this final product.
so the latest group of work I've been working on has shifted to sea life. I have grown fascinated with the jellyfish of Palau's landocked lakes.
I'm trying to make a cultural statement by juxtaposing open ocean sea life with the jellyfish found trapped in the inland lakes.
open ocean life = the world on an international level
jellyfish = close knit cultural centers that are more local.
