PRINTMAKING, ETCHING, DRAWING
"This etching piece was initially sketched from a Japanese friend who was working in Sydney in a Sushi restaurant. We were doing language exchange and she loved some of my black and white photos. It was never intended but she wanted to model, and considered it a proud moment to do so having come from a very conservative background.
This etching piece is my second effort at the intaglio process, and went through many acid baths to achieve the tonal range, all by hand-stipple. Japanese woman have wonderful poise and grace, and I tried to capture one of these moments in this piece."
