Artist's Comments:
The 3 plates were made from 3 separate pencil drawings, layered together in various, unique configurations. The drawings themselves were inspired by photos I had taken of chain link fences (see artist statement). Once they were transformed into etchings and we started playing with color, the title Network came to me, as each piece became more about the relationship of the color and line, and more symbolically representative of systems, structures, and connections in general.
