Actaeon Dreams by Diane Victor

Birth of a Nation comprises of a suite of ten etchings using imagery that is adapted from classical mythology to a South African context of visuality. The series is characterised by a copper matrix drawn using a drypoint needle and a variety of roulette tools to build up an immensely detailed surface.  Each of the ten etchings have an edition size of 30.  Prints are only available as part of a set.

Actaeon Dreams
The protagonist in Actaeon Dreams is not actually Actaeon but a saucy Artemis who bares her breast while the familiar hounds from the myth look on.
