Intaglio Etching

The imagery for this etching gradually came to me like a quiet dream. This piece is a metaphor for fishing where you cast out a line and wait to see what you catch. When attracting a quarry, the fisher considers carefully the type of bait that will be desirable in order to entice it.

About the artist

Joanne Madeley
Edmonton, AB

“As a child I spent countless hours collecting paper ephemera and found objects that interested me. I surrounded myself with things from the world around me that lifted my spirit and helped to summon a creative space in my mind. This creative space was a place without the words to explain itself, where ideas jumped into my head and I lost track of time. This was a place where I was free to try out ideas with my hands until they simply looked right. My everyday life as a child not only invited a creative state of mind to appear, but also afforded me the time to explore such a state. My art practice now seeks to recapture this state of mind. A graduate of Concordia University in Montreal, I am a Canadian artist currently based in Edmonton.”
