Gingerbread Series

Aquatint Etching
Inspried by the movie ‘Brothers Grimm’ this series of aquatints explores the origin of fairytales and dismisses their sanitization!

The Well

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
“The Well was the source where
the mud came to life,
transforming itself into
Gingerbread strife!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Run, Run!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
“Run, run as fast as he could
he couldn’t escape the
Gingerbread Hood!”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Lost

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
He lost his senses,
He lost his soul,
Becoming victim to
the Gingerbread Call!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Big thank you to Dennis Klau for showing me how to present my work in a series!

    This is extremely good. Aquatint is a very difficult technique but you really master it. Wow, fairytales can be rather scary, can’t they?

    Thank you flyboy. Really appreciate your comment. It is a very long process and you are never quite sure of the results until it is inked up. Seems to be a dying art in a way, most printmakers are using other techniques more!

    This is the series I’ve sent off the Works on Paper Art Award, see if I have better luck with these prints than I did with the Collagraphs of Venice and my lino cut!
