Man is part of a series of works which position my silhouette within an ambiguous, fluid space which might be the external landscape or equally the internal psyche.
Created as an etching on copper plate using techniques I developed which use rosin powder suspended in a liquid and applied in a way which allows the rosin to move and collect in accordance to it's nature as a particle, producing these natural flowing patterns.
