Homage to Turner & Hokusai (2009)
Media: Copper plate etching & aquatint
I borrowed iconic landscape imagery from both J.M.W. Turner, the great English 19th century Romantic painter, and Katsushika Hokusai, Japan’s greatest printmaker. The result is a cool and misty flat pattern of curling tsunami waves and a pitched sailboat moving from right to left. The contrasting background sky has been aquatinted.
