Intaglio-type is a non-toxic technique that can be used in a multitude of ways. I have chosen this particular one because it suits my desire to draw. I draw an image using a china marker on a transparency. I then transfer it to a copper plate with a photosensitive film, using a light source. The plate is then etched in a sodium carbonate solution. Finally, the etched plate is ready to be inked and printed in an intaglio manner.
My image is produced by recycling details of previous prints and other materials collaged onto a black sheet of paper. The contrast obtained allows for a strong statement about the tragedies of war. This image is part of my “War Series.”
