The series compromises a suite of six colour etchings based on unravelling and patching. The inspiration comes from energetic particles, veins, threads and used textile surfaces; thereby making sparse poems with textural and calligraphic features, with a nod to the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic of Japan.
Numbers 1 to 13 of the edition of 30 include an original poem by the artist set in letterpress on the same page as the image. There is a boxed set of all six etchings with poems available. One set was acquired by The National Library of Ireland.
