Washed blue and sepia verticals in this intaglio aquatint on wove paper lean towards a central focal point, a triangular space in light sepia framed by taches of indigo. Bright lime yellow highlights draw the eye up the picture plane but the light area within the triangle, the grotto, brings the eye back down. This work is one of eight prints created in 1983-84 by well known Canadian artists in tribute to their colleague and mentor Jack Bush following his death in 1977. The eight artists in this project titled HOMAGE TO JACK BUSH PORTFOLIO (SUITE OF 8) are Darryl Hughton, Joseph Drapell, Freidel Dzubas, Kathleen Margaret Graham, Dorothy Knowles, Dan Christensen, William Perehudoff and Michael Steiner. The suite is comprised of three color silkscreens and five etchings or aquatints and published by Merriot Editions, Ltd., Toronto in 1984. This print by Hughton has two unidentified blindstamps lower right, a hand fan, and a lotus flower inside a hand. It is signed, titled, dated 1984 and numbered 67/90 in pencil in bottom margin. Hughton's work is held in private and public collections including the Clement Greenberg Collection, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
