Death by John Slaby
Etchings on Paper
Four 4" x 5" Images
11" x 38" with matt and black metal frame
This work shows the process of destroying an etched plate. The first image is from the completed zinc plate. The subsequent images were made as the plate was slowly destroyed by sanding, leading to the final image showing only traces of the original etching. The destrcution of the image thus mirrors the death process.
Due to the large glass, this piece is only available for in-store pick-up.
