Hen (tangerine aquatint)

Zinc etching with aquatint (1994)

100×120 mm

This mad hen contains the only tangerine aquatint I know of…

It was created by spraying the wax with a Tangerine peel. I then removed the liquid and put it into a nitric acid bath.

I love tangerines so much, I once created a self portrait, the Tangerine Man, in which a huge tangerine was placed in place of my head!

I have since lost the plate…
