This show featured recycled and refurbished artwork.
As an Intaglio printmaker I always save plates after an edition is completed. For this exhibit I restored a plate by cleaning up old ink, polishing the surface and coating it with a clear lacquer spray for anti-oxidation.
The image on the plate depicts lives that appeared in the early stage of our planet. The seated figure is surrounded by primitive creatures which flourished way before dinosaurs ruled the earth.
