Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is a drypoint print made as part of a series of 6 images. These pictures were inspired by a concert I went to at the Perth Concert Hall called Conversations with Ghosts featuring Paul Kelly and 10 classical musicans including the composser James Leger and Genevieve Lacey on recorder.

Listening to this music over and over after the concert, I created a work that was my response to the lyrics and the sounds. The imagery filled my head as I listened to the CD in my car. Some of the Paul Kelly Lyrics are:
"I woke up with the dread a stranger by my bed,
The room was cold I swear she had entered with no tread
Are you real I said or just somebody in my head?"

The music is dreamlike and haunting, and this artwork is a response to that. The rich velvety line quality of drypoint is just right for the imagery.
