101 poppies. Each etched on a 10x10cm etching plate, papersize 15x15 cm.
Just before summer, the poppies are nowhere to be seen one day, and everywere the next day. In the park, next to the road, on the dike. I find that fascinating. As if that last spring shower gives the final push. Whether the sun shone enough that day so that all those poppies thought collectively: "This is the moment." A magical moment. A moment to cherish, because a poppy only blooms for a short time. "
A study of the appearance of the fragile poppy and at the same time a study of the different possibilities within the graphical etching technique to get an image on the etching plate.
