"This etching piece was initially sketched and drawn whilst traveling to Japan for the first time. Feeling the squash of many tourists and the selfie-obsessed, I was advised to take a walking path up into the mountains.

Having no real idea of direction or where I would end up as I climbed the steep pathways, finally I arrived at a beautiful vista that overlooked the entire Kyoto basin and sprawling city beneath. A realisation that I had been drawing in a particular style all of my life, and that it was actually, but quite unconsciously, Japanese in style.

This limited edition etching incorporates the intaglio and aquatint etching process on 1.2mm copper. The city in the image is implied, not seen. It is my own dream and imagination of a past age, and what a possible future life in the city might be."
