Gravure Á l'Eau Forte

 

continued

Changing shows a person in a long robe calmly floating horizontally in midair in a stand of trees. The ground is littered with clock faces as if with puddles. The man's hair transforms into branches that blend with the surrounding tree branches. One other person serenely floats in the distance. This calm, mystical, arboreal dream image transfixed me for several uncounted minutes.

Station depicts sooty brick row houses tilting up into the air and transforming into an airborne train, so gradually that the viewer is surprised to realize the change. Fruits (left) features dreamy pod people amid bubble-pearls.

Don't miss Zirnite's first substantial U.S. solo exhibit and Paloma's inaugural public show, on display Friday, October 3, through Sunday, November 2. Zirnite chose as the show title the French term for etching, "gravure Á l'eau forte," or "engraving with strong water" — a reference to the acid used.

Strong water, indeed . . . intoxicating.    (end of article)
