Intaglios from the series "Some Old Things"

These works grew out of my meditations on the words and ideals of President Obama's First Inaugural address, specifically:

“These things are old.  These things are true  -- honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism –

Our challenges may be new.  The instruments with which we meet them may be new.  But those values upon which our success depends are old. ...

They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history". © 2016-19 beresford
