Birth by John Slaby
Etchings on Paper
Four 5" x 4" Images
13" x 30" with matt and black metal frame
This work shows the process involved in the creation of an etched plate. The first image is from the zinc plate with the aquatint and minor etching marks. The subsequent images were made during the etching process in which the plate was scraped to create lighter areas. The creation of the image thus mirrors the birth process.
Due to the large glass, this piece is only available for in-store pick-up.
