12 Down, 8 To Go

28 Nov

28 12 down

I’m working flat out to complete a suite of 20 new works for my upcoming group exhibition. I’m drawing in ink onto ‘transfer’ prints on art papers, Bockingford and BFK Rives, 250gsm. The transfer prints started out as digital photos I’ve taken over the years, printed onto ordinary inkjet paper, placed face down onto art paper and rubbed with cheap nail-varnish remover, then put quickly through an etching press. The chemicals mutate the colours and the pressure transfers the image onto the artpaper. I’ve completed the 12 here and the remaining 8 have been pencilled and I’m inking them up now. I reckon another day of inking and then mounting and framing over the weekend. Here’s some info if you’re on Facebook.

Sparta Puss had a good look too. Now, back to inking……..

    Certainly sounds worthy of a play – sorry, I meant to say ‘an investigation’.

        ? Which brute? I was referring to the fact that the ‘play’ word is frowned upon in printmaking circles. One ‘ experiments’, ‘investigates’, ‘modifies the technique’ but never ‘plays’!

      ah, I thought you were encouraging Sparta Puss to ‘play’ with my work lol
