Paper size 25 x 30 cm
’Destination Unknown’ is an etching with monoprint which was made during the latter stages of the very strict Covid 19 lockdown imposed in Spain in Spring 2020. To a lessor or greater degree our futures are always a destination unknown but as we exit the lockdown and enter the ‘new normality’ never has there been such an uncertain future. In this print the future is out in the misty distant, leaving it up to us as individuals as to how we shape it.
This print has been created by making a drawing on a copper plate which is then etched in a traditional way. In the printing process the artist has then taken a second blank etching plate and inked this up freely with different coloured inks, overprinting the two plates ti create the finish image. Each print within the edition is varied - some marginally and some quite greatly. Here there are three different prints from which the viewer can choose.
