etching, ink on creamy archival paper
#3 out of 10, signed on the front
10 x 15 plate, on 32 x 16 paper
This etching was inspired by a class assignment. For me, Madness is being consumed by thoughts and unable to stop the spiral, infinitely obsessed. I continuously scratched looping circles into the plate, so that their dense overlaps create an enveloping darkness. This is the midst of madness, when the thoughts cannot be stopped and deeper and deeper they consume you.
