Manholes And Parcel Tape

8 Feb
Ready to tidy up the edges of exposed photoscreens screens

Sealing The Edges

I had a contented afternoon at Waun Wen Community Centre today, preparing my photoscreens by fixing parcel tape around the interior edges to seal the space between the edge of the photo-solution and the frame of the screen. This has to be done before printing otherwise the ink will seep though onto the paper.

The edges of the screen have been sealed with parcel tape.

The images are developed from digitally altered photos of manhole and stopcock covers on local pavements (taken by Melvyn Williams).

Part of the Home and Hinterland community arts project in partnership with Swansea University’s Taliesin Arts Centre.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artefacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
