Broken Water by Shane Cotton
Original Screenprint
Image size in millimetres: 760 x 560
Handmade edition of 60 numbered and signed by Shane Cotton.
Cotton tells us that this print shows the tension between clarity and ambiguity are played out as the words “broken water” are rendered in sharp contrast to the murky veil of cloud beneath. In one simple image and with two simple words it encapsulates the potential dichotomy of interpretation.
