Eneida Sanches’ oeuvre is composed of panels and objects made of approximately ten thousand metal etchings printed on paper and mounted on steel wire. Each etching, made using aqua forte and aquatint techniques, measures 5 x 5 cm. The resulting installations cross the boundaries between etching and sculpture.

Sanches’ production explores the idea of Trance as a religious phenomenon, and the collective social representation of Afro-Bahian culture and its histories. Her iconographic repertoire originates in the universe of Candomblé ritual and its functional order. Her ten thousand prints result from hundreds of copper plates and the convergence of the functional limits of etching and sculpture.
