As with most of my work my the inspiration is nature, these collagraphs also are an exciting exploration of process. I am fascinated to see what I can make the card do, how far I can push it and control it, each print is an exciting revelation, I never quite know what it will look like till I lift off the paper.
Because of the delicate nature of these plates I can only produce a very small run of each before the plate is unusable – this keeps each art work very special.
This Piece is made using Collagraph plate layered with a drypoint etching plate.
Printed on 250gm Fabriano paper
image size 15cmx15cm
Using oil based intaglio inks
Each print is numbered, titled and signed
Every print comes presented flat, wrapped in cellophane with a board backing to keep it perfect.
