Statement / Description / Article:
My etchings are based on pieces of metal and rust.
These objects - corkscrews, drill bits, scissors, secateurs - are old found in markets or have been given to me, I wish to revive old tools and reveal their personality. I am interested in the surface textures of the metal with its well weathered patina resulting from years of use and exposure to the weather. My work is created by layers of etching, dry point and aquatint which are added to and scraped back to produce similar results to that found on these metal objects, and it is this that I seek to reproduce and represent, reflecting where possible their history.
