Ideas of Surfacing

I was inspired by the novel to play with the idea of drawing as a means of surfacing. The lead character of the novel is an illustrator and she adopts the word ‘surface’ as a multi-layered symbol throughout the book. The following series of etchings play with the idea of the drawn surface.
