Woman in Egyptian Oasis in Black and White. I employed two zinc plates to produce this single image. Part of the reason I use multiple plates relates to the concept of SEEING LIFE THROUGH A WINDOW VIA ART. In other words, a window frame shape entices the viewer to see my scene as if she or he is looking through a window. This etching is from my series entitled MYSTERIOUS PLACES AND SACRED SPACES. The actual visual is adapted from a 1936 photograph entitled, EGYPT, CAIRO. THE THREE PYRAMIDS SEEN THROUGH PALM GROVE, I found in the U. S. Library of Congress, Washington, DC in The G. Eric and Edith Matson Photograph Collection, Prints and Photographs Collection. The work demonstrates my interest in geometric form balanced by visual tensions. The print measures fifteen inches high by eighteen inches wide. My media includes a created blend of oil based, black etching inks, Charbonnel brand form France, on RivesBFK white printmaking paper. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector without a frame or mat. This keeps the price low and allows the collector personal choice in mat selection and framing. A sturdy cardboard box is employed for shipping the work. The etching is first wrapped in two layers of acid free glassine and then placed between two archival boards. This is next placed into the shipping carton and securely packed with bubble wrap. The Absolute Arts Dot Com price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, Certificate of Authenticity, and the shipment carton. Mailing and transportation costs are added to the price.
