Rose, etching and aquatint on copper plates, 24 x 18 in. x 11 (2013)

Rose was started as an etching piece that meant to be printed on paper. However, while I was working on the surface of the copper plates, altering its appearance with chemical and physical mechanism, my original vision shifted: the copper is what I look at and what I touch upon; its depth, weight, hard edges, vestige of harm and its scars (copper’s response to harm) is the Rose; to print it on paper seems to be an unnecessary media.

玫瑰, 铜板上蚀刻与飞尘, 24 x 18 in. x 11 (2013)

《玫瑰》原本是要印在纸上的铜版画作品,然而在制作的过程中,随着铜版的表面发生着物理和化学的改变,我对它原初的设想也改变了。铜是我所注视和触摸的,它的深度,重量,锐的边缘,损伤和疤痕(铜对于损伤的回应)就是玫瑰;印在纸上似乎成为了不必要的中间媒介。
