Etching

Etching is traditionally the process of using part of the metal surface to create a design in metal. Then, printmaking is the oldest method to create multiple works, however, every print is unique with each using a dedicated colour for press processing. 

Dawn has been working with hands through drawing and sketches for many years. Our hands are a magical part of the body; they do our work, they communicate, and they can express our emotions and feelings.

The multiculturalism in our city as the central concept of this art piece, Dawn thought expressionism would be the best to transcript her feeling towards the urban city life,

 

In this painting, bright colours represent the Leon lights all over the place. People with heavy shoulders walking on the street. The tiredness of strings holding our footsteps, and slowly we feel lost, we starting wondering about the meaning of life in this chaos bizarre metropolitan.​

The contrast of the color palette represents the diaspora and polarization of the society which the chaotic nature of the human-like strings vividly depicts the entanglement of struggling among the metropolitan.
