Change Is My Savings Plan
Intaglio print
11.25" x 9.25"
2012

This Artist Proof on Rives BFK is pulled from a 6" x 4.75"; zinc plate. It was etched with traditional methods using a hard ground, stylus, and nitric acid. The aquatint was made with non-toxic methods and etched in copper sulfate. The phrase “Run Every Sense” is from Aretha Franklin’s version of “A Change is Gonna Come.” I’ve also composed a feminist anti-war poem, “Change Is My Saving Plan,” whose lexicon is derived from Act 1, Scene i of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
