Multiple Resist Printmaking

Trees- multiple resist prints

Etching plates are made using a process, in which a variety of resists are employed in concert to create both ‘accidental’ fractal lines and more deliberate hard edged shapes. Prints are then made using inks of different viscosities, laid down in layers, so that the final blending of colour renders each print unique.

The abstract landscape prints explore both the landscape form and the invisible forces at work within it.I am fascinated by the knowledge that landscape can change profoundly over geological time scales and try to express this by making surface and depth ambiguous. My work also seeks to infer the invisible forces at work within the landscape.

The Sylvan prints introduce drawn shapes to the technique.
