Drift Woods I
Medium: etching, aquatint with chine-colle, hand-colouring and 23k gold leaf
Drift Woods I tells of a wild old soul, a Man, one of a now lost people who lived a different, uncertain life. He remembered travels and stories, he told them in rich, colourful fragments; he said when their lands lay in ruin the men loaded ships with their strength and hopes, the women added seeds, trees and traces of home. Together, they sailed North with a whisper of old memories and new unspoken dreams.
