This is a mono-type print - they are made as an edition of 5 prints using an intaglio process where the ink is rubbed into and off the mount board plate, so a true identical edition is not possible. They are very small editions and the gold is added as a glaze to the print.
The concern is socio-political, an address of assumed gender roles in Art and physical history. I want to depict women as thinkers, strong, singular entities not mother or queen or sex object, able to indulge and be guilty of sloth, envy, lust or power and still maintain feminine beauty – sirens. Some titles connect to powerful woman in history. Experiencing depictions of women in Degas delicate dancers and burlesque bathers, Rodin’s fallen in the gates of hell and sexualized drawings of women: Gustaf Klimpt, Egon Sheila and Eric Gill; Henry Moore’s gigantic queens and powerful mothers cradling infants reinforce the same depictions investigated in Archaeology.
