Artist's description:

Drawing the human body is a constant source of inspiration for me. Using the process of etching, I repeat the image of an ancient torso, altering each one to make it unique. I present whole and fragmented torsos as dynamic yet timeless forms. This is a single edition intaglio print made using layers of hand-colored paper collage. I achieved the smoky texture by using various inks and wiping techniques. My handprint is literally in this work: I traced around my fingers to create the silhouette overlay that partially obscures the torso.

Materials used:

paper, ink
