Umbra Sumus Video

The video below is linked to the etching series and can be shown in conjunction with the prints or as a separate work

Taken from a quote by Horace, ‘Pulvis et umbra sumus’ (we are but dust and shadow) Umbra Sumus is an ongoing project containing photopolymer and acrylic resist etchings and video works.

The work began partly as a response to the death, in January 2011, of my father, and has evolved to become more a reflection on personal history and the wider human condition.
