A SERIES OF COLD WAR YARNS
'A Series of Cold War Tales' is inspired by stories of my revolutionary Moscow relatives, heard in childhood. It’s hard to appreciate the allure Russia held in the Cold War era. Whispers of an uncle in the Kremlin wall, a comrade’s closet love for Agatha Christie, filled my imagination with images lit like stills from a black and white spy movie. Etching, aquatint and spit-bite were the obvious choice of medium for these spurious histories.
