This etching is one of a series of simple domestic images that capture a fleeting moment in time. They invite the viewer to enter the scene and expect an encounter. Images are Images on 7.5×9.5″ Somerset paper. Series are 22×15″ on Somerset paper.
Late 2022 I needed a subject matter to build technical skills in etching processes. I reached back to when I first encountered Albrecht Dürer’s pillow sketches (1493 AD) which prompted me a few years ago to try to draw some pillows myself. It’s not easy! Soon my subject matter emerged as representational images of my own living space. I feel the intimacy of the etching process aligns well with these quiet images. They intend to capture a fleeting moment in time, asking the viewer to enter the scene.
