This print was created from my love of Bonsai (also a hobby of mine). This print is one of two prints I’ve done based on my teacher’s trees. The etching print expresses the radical bending of his trees from the original bush when collected many years ago. To make an etching print you cover the plate with ink then remove the surface ink leaving the ink in the etched area; i.e. intaglio process. This allows the artist to create detail lines, various textures and a look of age to the resulting print. This print is one of currently ten different trees each with it’s own story to tell. The hope is that the viewer of these prints get the feeling of tree and/or the excitement of Bonsai; a living art.
