the allegory of conversion

solar etchings with chine collé 

In this series "the allegory of conversion," I found myself relying on familiar images in order to focus my attention on a new etching process, solar etching. What has emerged has become a representation of the transitions I believe we all undergo when we are in the creative process. The familiar is comfortable and ultimately you start reaching further with the new process. There are 15 etchings in this series with a varied edition of many of them.
