Etching and Linocut
33 x 33cm
In 2015 Shelley spent four weeks as Artist in Residence at the Venice School of Graphic Arts in collaboration with the Department of Micrology at Venice University. Her time in Venice was spent collecting water samples from the Venice canals and using the microscopes in the science laboratory to develop on her artistic enquiry.
This work extended the artist’s fascination with the natural world and builds on previous work in Morecambe Bay, County Mayo and the River Severn, Gloucestershire.
