Etching and chine colle. I use the image of the astronaut in this body of work. The astronaut, marooned in this urban setting is kept at once alive by his suit but also is prevented from accessing his surroundings. These pieces aim to show a loneliness and melancholia present in all people.
Christine Petrou Very interesting and original work. The figure seems to illustrate alienation from the self and from the surroundings. Makes me think that we are all like aliens on our own planet. There is no face to the head. Do thought and spirit fail us?
