G.H. Rothe, Polish (1935-2008)
"I carve my images into copperplates directly with a diamond. Then I pit the surface with a chisel-like tool called a rocker. when the ground work is done, I use a steel burnisher quite extensively to shape my images as one would do in a fine barr relief but working in reverse. After I pull a proff print from the copperplate, I cover the surface anew with fine pitted holes using the rocker, eliminating thought in action, practicing Kama Yoga. The experience of layering images and the x-ray shapes is guided by the mind's eye. I feel, but cannot see the picture underneath the second layer of pits."
