“In 1970 I was working on several large etchings in a series known as The Lost Party. One of those plates, an image of a search party stranded while looking for lost sealers, was inspired by Theodore Gericault’s great painting The Raft of the Medusa, in the collection of the Louvre. When I encountered technical difficulties with this plate I set it aside and moved forward with other new etchings.

At that time I was Artist in Residence at the University of Toronto, Mississauga and when I completed the residency and moved to Port Hope this plate was somehow misplaced or ‘lost’.

After finally becoming settled in a recently built new studio in Port Hope, I asked my studio manager/ assistant to undertake the first complete and comprehensive inventory of all the copper plates. During that inventory, this past year, the ‘lost’ plate was discovered, and completed in 2021.”
