Erna Simis is fascinated by naturally formed shapes and textures. She is intrigued by the sense of constant movement and change around us. In her abstract etchings, she strives for a symbiosis between shape, line, colour and texture. She often combines several etching plates and techniques and loves the unpredictability of the etching plate.
