I made the series of plates last year. Seven etchings each responding to a couplet of the John Keats sonnet. This was an act of admiration after encountering something so perfect, an attempt to reproduce that perfection in another version, and ambitiously, to make the texts more available to a wider body of audience. The image is a single frame that is much more instinctive, not superior but the visual anchor is powerful in ways words cannot be.
