Description
Mark Leithauser etches with short, sure lines, using grays and blacks to create a lush composition of the interior of a greenhouse. He contains the image within a linear border, which he breaks through with foliage. The effect is similar to Peter Milton's etching "Daylilies" where the composition intrudes on the viewer' space, drawing the viewer into it.
