This is the 3rd major project I have been working on in class. The general theme that I chose was ‘faces’, and more particularly, what meanings or emotions a face can hide. In this case, smaller foxes were drawn into a fox’s face. I wanted to represent how a face can symbolize a group, a generation, a way of life, the influences of a certain time or place, specifically, here, being in a pack.
I used the intaglio printing technique, as with the elephants in the last post. I carved the drawing into a zinc plate though, because the copper plate hadn’t been strong enough to withstand more than 5 or 6 rolls under the press with the elephants- this made engraving a bit harder though.
I think I might get this print framed 🙂
Can you see the face?
