Limited edition prints; works on paper escapades


Posted by on | |
This is a terrific show, i saw this in Alstonville NSW but since then it has travelled up to north Queensland & back. Have a look at the nightladder site for further information but the best way to experience the etchings & linocuts bound in book form is to see the work in person..The show opens on Thursday night @ Redland Art Gallery in Capalaba...

Number six..Probably the last etching for this group at the proof stage as the lines need to be aquatinted. A bird-man travelling in space. The paper is actually a linocut/relief paper, Fabriano i think...i like the colour

..the fourth plinth.. yinka-shonibare

...looking at various opportunities out there to self publish your artists books photography or drawings??
Recently searching for an artist friend of mine & came accross this but i dont know anyone who's actaully done it. It seems (very) ideal & appealing ...have any of you tried it or know someone who has??
Im checking it

sleeping/waking etching

For me the difficulty in starting things is to finish them. With a preference (i think) to do several things at once & i suppose i keep things close. It looks as though these etchings are complete now..Only one of them needs burnishing & i dont feel the need to add anything more into them in terms of colour. A few minor tweeks.....more paper to carry them..perhaps six altogether.
They belong to the night whispers thematically & id like to make a box for this series of prints eventually...mmmmmmm

Collagraph Printmaking Workshop 16 & 23 May

Posted by on | |

The next impress printmaking workshop is fast approaching. Tell your friends & enemies.Collagraphs have so many advantages.It is so accessible to all participants irrespective of skill level & importantly keeps costs to a minimum. Printmaking can be a very expensive endeavor after the purchase of plate, paper, inks & then some. I think this is a worthwhile skill to learn for all avid printmakers out there, part collage, drawing,intaglio or relief - its got potential. I'm going to make a series i think...for the show & tell.
