Etchings by E.B.Rothwell
Spiritus Loci
Spiritus Loci
There usually is more in E.B. Rothwell's etchings than first meets the eye. That is true in her Spiritus Loci grouping where figure-ground ambiguities abound in the spirit of the place.

The last eight here are a visual game created while interpreting an ancient belief. In The Spiritus Loci Game Rothwell has given human form to shapes that exist in nature. The ancient fabulists believed that those who had a hand in shaping history left their images upon the land. The artist asks us to retain some of that pre-rational vision which sees what nature has provided -- a mystery upon which to exercise our imaginations.
