Etching Collages

Over thirty years ago I was a printmaking assistant.  Aside from generally assisting and printing for other artists I also managed to print my own work, etchings.   Years later as my interest in collage grew I decided to use many of these etchings to create new collages.  For the most part I let the shapes, patterns, and textures of the existing etching remnant define the image with only minimal use of pen and ink or paint.   A decade or so later I revisited these pieces again but this time with a bit more intervention to help define the pieces even more.  For some reason I was partial to rectangles.
