Graft Series

Graft Series is a series of progressive etchings pulled from one plate. The etchings oscillate between clinical and personal languages of the body. Working with the same plate throughout the series engages with the copper plate as a body of it’s own, with a changing and morphing surface, as well as engaging with the language of the body itself as always in flux.
