Part of a series of 4 etchings.
Again, to celebrate his journey to the South Eastern province of China, Ian Murphy has produced a series of etchings illustrating the fragile, historic water town in Wuzhen.
The strongest image in the series, Ian Murphy uses this viewpoint to highlight the most spectacular view of the waterside village. The pathway leads you past the strong foreground stone buildings and through into the imposing background, the multi-tiered pagoda structures. As with all the prints in the series, he has layered elements of Chinese poetry, atmospheric writings that work both as a narrative and a visual ambiguity to the etched surface.
