How they pluck her!, 2014
Etching and aquatint
9×6 IN.

'Bunnies (pretty ladies) encounter birds of prey, which pluck them when they least expect it. This is why the saying goes: trust no one, not even yourself.'

Edition of 12. Plate 21 from the series The Caprichos. Inscribed in the plate top right: '21'; titled in the plate lower center: 'How they pluck her!'. Numbered, signed, and dated in pencil.

The Caprichos, by Emily Lombardo, is a series of etchings which are in direct conversation and homage to Francisco Goya's Los Caprichos, 1799. Both reveal the dark underbelly of cultural movements which ultimately serve to divide society across economic, racial, political, religious, and gender lines. Lombardo brings these issues into contemporary light through a queer feminist lens.
