and hard ground etching on gampi paper chine colle
26 1/2" x 31", Edition 20
"Etching is something
you can spend your
lifetime learning about."
—Kiki Smith , 2006
Kiki Smith has been spending some time at Crown Point Press and seems to be working on a new series involving feet or legs. The above etching is quite provocative. There is something eerie about the flat skirt object and these very detailed realistic feet. The wash in the background is very dreamlike which works effectively with the black and white figure.
