“Golden Treasures 6” is a lyrical botanical sugar lift and aquatint etched monoprint. It is a study of witch hazel leaves, prized for it’s healing powers in traditional herbal medicine. Hand printed in deep violet and metallic silver ink on 100% cotton rag paper, signed in pencil lower right corner. Nancy Azara is interested in time in relation to memory, personal history and her own mortality. In this suite of aquatints, she uses the leaf as a recurring theme; as a metaphor, a self portrait, a “stand in ” for herself.
