The Mutability of Knowing is a suite of eight etchings derived from Dan Steeves’ life-long relationship with the Bay of Fundy. Created using lithographic tusche washes etched on zinc plates, they explore the expansive flats of the Tantramar marsh and the ever-changing nature of sky and water which characterize the Fundy Basin.
