Resonance is a etching employing four colors and four plates. Throughout its composition, dispersed figures navigate through the earth, forming an intricate interplay with the landscape. The bodily forms simultaneously constitute the terrain and exist distinctly from it, illustrating various stages of metamorphosis. Some figures, more clearly defined in sex, maintain a discernible presence within the space. The amalgamation of these forms aims to establish a boundary figure, symbolically embodying both multiplicity and singularity, masculinity and femininity, and the essence of both plant and person.

By utilizing natural de-saturated hues of blue, green, and brown, I sought to seamlessly integrate the figurative forms into the landscape, accentuating their inherent unity.”
