Maseman’s whimsical etchings are best described as children’s stories for adults. In his work metaphorical and playful exteriors are inhabited with trees, swings, balloons, ladders and various other objects. Creaturely protagonists travel through these worlds, perhaps looking or searching for something. They don’t know where or when they will find it, or even what “it” is, but they have an abiding faith that they will reach their destination.
