I’m lucky enough to have some time away at another Artist’s studio space in a wonderful isolated location. It’s great to step away from my own reality for a week.
I’ve been making some very simple torn paper mini collograph plates to print intaglio. It’s all about converting my rubbish (mostly cardboard packaging & plastics) into printing plates. It’s also all about the TEXTURE … The ink will seek out the tiniest of marks. The mini plates will form parts of landscape in larger works. Time away from my own reality has helped glean a bit of clarity & has pushed me through my creative block & out the other side! Woo hooooooo!!! I know what I need to do. I’m ready for the ink when I get back to my own studio space. It’s been too long between prints !!
