Printmaking: Etching, Engraving on Paper.
The artwork is a collection of abstracts and haunting portraitures, the final result merges into a collaborative series. The abstract work is but the mark left by a hand in a narrative of horror and violence. The powerful story is told with a few non-representative strokes, which like many of the pieces, is dominated by black shapes. The portraitures leave you with a feeling of a person rising through the paint, emerging from below. There's something surprising, magical even, about how the broad strokes can depict a specific face and evoke something of the subject's personality or mood (as well as those of the artist).
This series is titled: The Esthetics of Murder a Series-Based on The Short Stories and Poetry of Edgar Allen Poe.
