Modern Ruin Intaglio print on bleached Stonehenge
Modern Ruin
Intaglio print
9.25" x 11.25"

This Artist Proof, pulled from a 4.5" x 6.25" zinc plate, is a result of my desire to approach a blank plate without any preconceived notion of what to do to it. Using a traditional hard ground technique, the line work was made with a stylus and various dental tools and etched in nitric acid. The gray tones are a result of a non-toxic aquatint etched in copper sulfate. It is printed on hand-bleached Stonehenge paper.
