Separation Anxiety is a visual representation of connectedness between people, both coming together and growing apart. The images were created on one dry-point etched zinc plate, each image etched on top of the previous in order to see faint shadows of the earlier images as they progressed. This was meant to represent how personal relationships leave marks and impressions on us as humans, and how important those are as we move through life, growing with others around us. The title is meant to invoke how separations can cause anxiety, a feeling that I was experiencing as I expressed my Senior Thesis at Bard College, which explored connections and relationships and how those can change through time, space, and experience.
