Last semester we had a ‘human condition’ theme to our classes with a particular lecturer. For the printmaking class we had to do a certain amount of prints from a few different methods. With this print, I scratched the design with a sharp pin into some per specs.
The design is of a series, I was comparing stages of human life to that of plants, mainly flowers. This stage was sort of teenage, the flower is old enough that it has grown a bud, so much growing already done yet that’s just the beginning, now it’s blooming vulnerably and potentially into a flower ready to see what life brings it.
