Women of the Apocalypse- etching series
I began this series of etchings in response to the increasingly visible problem of harassment of women.
The "Woman of the Apocalypse" is mentioned in the Bible as rescuing the souls of children from the Last Judgment. To me, the Woman of the Apocalypse symbolizes common sense and compassion. I use the female nude to embody those qualities in a graceful form.
The monkeys in these pictures represent would-be powerful men who are slaves to their animal nature.
I find that the intensity of the medium of etching is especially effective in expressing this strongly-felt content.
