Our work Lesley Alcorso Editions 2008
Future Catchers, 2008
420 X 595mm, 2 plate etching on aluminium
This work deals with energy exploration and human interaction in a global context. Energy and energy harvesting by societies is not exclusive to the human race. The harvesting of honey by bee colonies is being explored in the same way that humans harvest with oilrigs, hydroelectric dams and wind farms. The work is about the human desire for innovation. It is about the desire and power to succeed regardless and the necessity to find balance.
Working on plates is a fluid process. Nic treats each print as unique and loves to see each work as an individual in a series of the edition.
