Iron Capture

Hand-engraved drawings on rusted industrial steel, contemporary photography, cast vinyl print, car/spray paint and crayons; sometimes with a touch of poetry, occasionally with some gold. Working with oxidation is comparable to other natural processes; it takes time and dedication. As fine woodworkers look for the right wood prints, with metal it’s about rust patterns; wild and colorful, or dark and burned. With rust it takes a few months to obtaining really soaked textures.
