In this series of etchings I am visually referencing the struggle with in Tiamat (the Babylonian chaos dragon from a creation myth) I am trying to make some sense of the chaos in the world around me and create some order to help me deal with this chaos. I made this work years ago and find it just as relevant today.
I created the colour etchings on zinc plates, with the aid of nitric acid and resist grounds. I applied the colours using the viscosity principal to each individual plate using several large and small rubber rollers. After inking the plate, I pull an original print onto a sheet of rag paper by applying pressure to the zinc plate using a hand operated etching press.
