Barracuda Battery

Aquatint Etching

Edition of 20

I am a Southampton based printmaker, many of my images are inspired by the sea. Barracuda Battery captures a subterranean social scene, with the self-conscious barracuda inspecting and exploring each other’s position and motion. The Barracuda migrate for a better life, not dissimilar to ourselves. 

I love to watch fish when snorkelling, just under the water, out of reach but reflecting our own social interactions in their behaviour.
