Mila Furstova, born in Czechoslovakia, studied at the RCA and now resides in England. She manages to beautifully combine both etching and mixed media digitally. I love the richness that this produces. Of her etching she states: The technique of etching uniquely reflects and informs the spirit of my work. I draw with a needle onto a plate, allowing the image to quietly grow, whilst a fragile silver line emerges from a dark background as if a distant memory was traced from the unconscious. The initial stage undergoes metamorphosis as the alchemical process of etching progresses through each of its stages. (Source: www. furstova.com).
