This collection of monoprints was printed by printed at Tim Foulds' printmaking studio in Midrand.
To explain the process: I paint an image on a copper plate with oil based ink, thinned with turpentine. While it is still wet, Tim puts it through the press with archival acid free paper. The result is a mirrored transfer of the painted plate. Unlike etchings, lithos and linocuts, only one print can be made, although the remaining ink on the plate can be reworked and printed as a unique ghost image of the previous print.
Only recently discovered your absolutely stunning work. What a feast! I look forward to exploring more...ReplyDelete
