Misfortunes of a Sardine, 2003

Drypoint

The series of eight drypoints entitled ‘Misfortunes of a Sardine’, image by miniature image serves symbolically to represent a meditation, not on the mystery of faith but on the journey made during the course of individual and creative development. The humble Sardine has become both guide on the journey and the pictorial personification of the creative process itself . . .
