The Balcony: The World is Made of Eggs

Wardell Milan first initiated The Balcony by creating a suite of eight etchings in 2019. In 2022, he extends the portfolio through a second series of eight etchings entitled The Balcony: The World is Made of Eggs. Though made at different times, both suites are strongly affected by the circumstances in which they came into being and the way Milan engages with the visual culture surrounding him, including imagery from news feeds.
The result is a portfolio of prints employing a range of time-honoured printmaking techniques which are executed in a range of grey tones, pattern and line work to create decidedly contemporary, politically charged visual narratives.
The Balcony alludes to the relationship between performer and spectator in a theatre setting. Milan imagines the viewers observing the action ‘as if they are sitting above in a balcony watching the melodrama unfold before them.’
