Etchings by E.B.Rothwell
Early Works
Early Works
Elaine began etching on zinc plates as her primary medium in 1975. She created images that could be seen in more than one way and referred to these as figure-ground ambiguities.

Rothwell created nature themes next (Plant series & Bird series) turning her mystifying ways into hidden images found in the neutral (blank/white) spaces between the obvious images. Then came Magnolia Ball (etching #20) in which her enigmatic display of bodies dancing simultaneously seen as trunks of trees gives one the cerebral pleasure of seeing familiar images in new ways. Many years later this theme can be seen in her series Seasons of Romance.
