James Grffith on this body of work:
My images are made by scratching or etching into a layer of tar on a panel. This method grew out of my love for the 19th century engravings made by naturalists like Darwin in order to document their findings. As I began emulating their linear crosshatch patterns, I found I could record the smallest details of an animal’s body and facial expressions. I felt I was nose to nose with my subjects, imagining their breath, their heat, their whiskered itching. This unexpected intimacy was a transformational experience that added a more open-ended compassion to my world view.
