about Grand Canyon II

Roy Purcell's view of the Grand Canyon dwarfs the small person depicted standing on the ledge of a cliff.

About The Artist: Roy Purcell

Roy Purcell has lived and worked as an artist in Las Vegas since 1970 and has created a large body of work in various media.

About The Medium: Etching

The printing process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal. In traditional pure etching, a metal (usually copper, zinc or steel) plate is covered with a waxy ground which is resistant to acid. The artist then scratches off the ground with a pointed etching needle where they want a line to appear in the finished piece, exposing the bare metal. The plate is then put through a high-pressure printing press together with a sheet of paper (often moistened to soften it). The paper picks up the ink from the etched lines, making a print.
