Photogravure · Plate size 30 × 36.5cm · 2001
This new series of limited edition, hand-pulled copper-plate photogravures are documents of small, dried animal remains presented as fossil-like impressions using ink on paper.
The attraction to these fossil-like impressions of small creatures is greatly magnified by their animation. These creatures seem active, gesturing, locomotive. The gestures or implied movement of each creature contradicts their mummified state. The greatly enlarged scale allows the viewer to explore the minutiae of these usually unexamined specimens.
