I made these matrices over a long period of time and only recently got to printing them. I work in serial often, and this entails a change in color to make monoprints of the textural matrices.
I recently remembered an old technique for generating compositions that involves making collages and combing them for scenes using a 2 inch or so viewfinder. I loved doing this many years ago and it still seems valid. Here are a couple examples that I may turn into some woodcuts or etchings or…..something.

The thing I have loved about aluminum as a matrix for etching is the ease of attaining a beautiful aquatint without extra steps. The metal erodes in interesting ways that can become chaotic if not monitored, but when the salt and copper sulfate mix is carefully regulated, the results can be amazing. These are some prints I created a while ago using sugar lift, chine-collé, and oil based marker resist.
