Lucifer / Lantern 2012
Etching and chine collé
Paper size 38 x 38.5cm
Edition of 20 plus 4 A/Ps
Lucifer and Lantern were printed in collaboration with Simon Marsh of Paupers Press, London, who worked with Fisher to achieve the subtle patina in the surface of the etchings. The images are akin to Fisher’s paintings, in the sense that they present visual palimpsests.
