public_access_description
This image by Paul Coldwell, Case Studies, is a photoetching printed as a relief print, and it is an interesting example of the use of digital imaging. It was made for an exhibition at the London Print Studio in 2002. In this image, an outline of an open suitcase floats over a mountain range in the night sky. Some of the pixellated dots of the original photographic image of the landscape are enlarged and joined together by drawn lines to form the outlines of the suitcase. The outline looks like a constellation of stars, or a children's 'join the dots' puzzle. The theme explores ideas of travel, or escape, both literal and in the mind.
