The seven ‘Unit Object’ etchings are a continuation of an ongoing series working with the geometries of the grid and the organic. Collaborating with Etching Master Stuart Duffin, the series uses both hand-drawn preparatory drawings and digital software as the basis for the seven works. Using the universal components of architecture such as the wall, grid and column, the geometries of the ‘Unit Object’ prints shift into various planes and folds. Shifting back and forth, the geometries¬†are at times three-dimensional and at times planar. The two landscape bookend etchings in the series use the idea of a landscape vista as the entry into the geometric planes. Using single and double etching plates to produce the textured surface, the grid repeats itself through the series.
