Artwork description:

This zinc etching print is a drawing of a rock collected from West Beach in Watchet, Somerset. The drawing was created with an etching needle on hard ground on a zinc plate and etched using Edinburgh Etch acid mixture (Iron Chloride and Citric Acid).

The rock was drawn recording the movement of the day's light as the Sun moved through the sky over a period of one week. This drawing records the various shadows, marks and lines revealed, carefully rendering fine crosshatched lines, dots and scrubbed lines. The image seeks to create the illusion of a three dimension object, as observed from eyeballing over the period of time, revealing something other, through a dialogue with the artist's mind, the object and how one re-interprets reality.

'Do I draw it or does it draw me?' [Alan Watts]

It is called Coleridge Rock which is a red rock I call Coleridge Red due to Samuel Taylor Coleridge being linked to Watchet, having lived for a time in Nether Stowey and going on long walks from his home to Porlock and Exmoor. He is the father and philosopher of the movement that came to be known as Romanticism.

Framed in a antique white frame mount with backing board and protected in a sealed polypocket with a Certificate of Authenticity.
