"Printmaking provides a process of enquiry and discovery, enabling me to create an echo of that authentic empathy I have felt with a subject that represents an element of a journey. I
find etching in particular gives me an extension to my drawing whist exploring the theme of journeys."

Controlling, to varying degrees, a spectrum of mark making techniques to build up the image, Terry applies layers of grounds, aquatint and engraving; burnishing to the copper plate which is malleable and builds a memory of the process. In applying it, he creates layers of intentional information.
