The Somnambulist

The Somnambulist
Etching, aquatint and drypoint on paper
50cm x 30cm

This print is part of a series of prints entitled Moon Phase, a theme that I periodically add to as the theme evolves. It includes Moonlit Roof (2010), Hirsute (2011) and Noli Me Tangere (2015).

Things connected to the moon include, moods, tides, lunacy, eclipse, sleep walking and werewolves. I use these ideas to illustrate the complex issues surrounding adolescence and having to grow up. They are also hugely inspired by writers such as Angela Carter (Company of Wolves), Karen Russell (St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves) and fairy tales.
