In Search of the Other
etching & chine colle on Hahnemuhle (conservation standard) paper
70 x 103 cm
This print incorporates the use of real plants collected and dried by me from the land around my studio on the Beara Peninsula. I have introduced two figures to this idyllic landscape,the one on the left is an African woman sowing seeds representing the women farmers who are taking control of their lands in the Third World and on the right a backpacker innocently exploring abroad.
