colorcampsight300: Campsight


Original etching, printed by hand in color. Currently available archivally matted and framed, 22"x16" for $250.
By: Denise Morse

In "Campsight" I have returned to the shape of an egg both as a compositional element and as a symbol of origins. The figure is back at the campsight, boots off, enjoying sitting around the fire, however, as happens when many of us stare into the fire, her thoughts have drifted to the recollection of the peak of Mt. Liberty in twilight as represented in the egg shape. Others have seen this shape as a tunnel to a memory which for me is an equally satisfying interpretation.

"Campsight" is an etching and aquatint with drypoint and roulette work. It is inked in color "a la poupee" on a single plate printed on Rives BFK, an archival 100% rag content paper.
