  • “I wanted to explore etching because it’s got a very rich colour. Something about the way that the colour is mixed—it’s just pigment and oil—and when that’s printed onto white paper it has a sort of luminosity to it and a richness of colour that you don’t really get in anything else.”
    —Ian Davenport
