Solar etching is a light sensitive plate that hardens the light areas and where the darks are it stays soft and is easily removed with water. This creates crevices as in traditional etching and is printed in the same manner. The differences between between are subtle but both have their unique qualities and are used for the possibilities they each have.
This image can be found in a lot of small villages and a great example of that period. It is Hand Printed by the Artist on 100% rag paper, titled, number and signed below the image area. It is a limited edition of 200. Image size is 8″ x 5″ with paper border.
These etchings have been documentaries of our Abodes and their history lies on its construction. It is also my way of including us people in the landscape.
