Printmaking: Etching, Lithograph, Ink, Pencil on Paper, Other.
The art was inspired by a friend who fought for her life. Despite losing her outward beauty over time, her inward beauty magnified. Her spirit and love of life are embodied in this series.
The art was created by real petals and leaves glued to a surface. Then inked with oils and run through an etching press onto paper. The print was then worked into with colored pencil to add contrast and emphasis in some areas.
I chose these materials to speak of the shedding of beauty and the physical body, through decay and suffering.
