Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012)
La Maree: Plate XV (Untitled)
These plates, numbering fifteen including vignettes, were done for a specific text, written by a friend. In them I explored a few new wrinkles - secrets? - happily appreciated by the author. Much of this work, and etchings that follow, have to do with chance; for so many things can happen to a copper plate, depending on how you treat it, that implications are myriad. The book is all about a seaside encounter, very erotic. Hence the watery look of the etchings.
