Crossing the water, etching, 9 x 10cm


'Crossing the water' is the name of a witch’s alphabet in Lucy Boston’s An Enemy at Green Knowe, where it was written across the wings of a dried bat. I lived in Lucy Boston’s books as a child. They seemed to acknowledge a magical world that anyone could reach just by listening and looking. I think the sense of crossing to a more awakened state of being is within this image too.

Etching on Somerset Velvet 300gsm paper.

Edition of 100.
