To begin as an introduction to my practice I have attached a selection of etchings completed while on a residency at the Goonhilly satellite earth station in Helston, cornwall. For more information and images please visit my website www.ichamberlain.co.uk. These etchings were originally sketched on location and then taken back to the studio and redrawn onto a copper plate. The etching process allowed me to re-ground the plate build up layers of information and, taking proofs on the way to see how the image was evolving. The image/plate was constantly in a state of flux and evolution.
