ORIGINAL ETCHING WITH AQUATINT [THE PIPING FISHERMAN].
[N.p.: The Artist, N.d., but ca. 1993]. - Aquatint etching on Somerset England handmade paper. "Charara Studio" embossed on lower left of paper. Hand-colored. Image 11.25 x 14.75", overall size 11.25 x 14.75". Signed in plate, and in pencil in lower right margin, numbered at lower left. Archivally mounted, with descriptive text attached to verso of mat. No. 7 from an edition limited to 10, published as part of the suite, VISUAL METAPHORS. The etching portrays a fisherman both piping and hauling a net, with a multitude of fish both "dancing" and ignoring the man. This fable's moral is "It is a great art to do the right thing at the right time." Adnan Charara is a Detroit-based Lebanese- American, born in Lebanon, but principally raised in Sierra Leone, West Africa. This series of etchings evoke an Aesop fable, transmogrified onto a human plane yet maintaining the essence of the fable. As a child, Adnan Charara was taught fables in a Lebanese boarding school a half hour everyday. He returned to these stories, with their moral lessons and pieces of advice, as a vehicle to explore his curiosity about the human personality.
