about Sunrise at Bayonne

At once expressive and sterile, “Sunrise at Bayonne” depicts a fiery metallic sunrise over the city of Bayonne, New Jersey.

Drawn with expressive strokes, the plate tone shadows the worker in gray, reflecting the industrial efforts of the city. Four lines of graphic text sit in the center panel, while the right image shows the sunrise fired by the efforts of labor.

About The Medium: Aquatint

An etching process in which tone is created by treating a plate with fine particles of acid resistant material (like powder resin) and then placing the plate in an acid bath. The acid bites into the plate between the grains of resin and when printed, the mass of tiny spots produces a textured area with tonal effects similar to watercolor wash.
