Printmaking & Book Art

I work usually on prints in series, subject related. I use a wide variety of printmaking mediums, including monotype and monoprint, etching and photopolymer gravure, collagraph, embossing and multi-media print, with the addition of some wood and lino cuts, and screen print.

Artist’s Statement

I mostly work on prints in series.

 

Previous series have related to the human body in different ways. Mostly there is a metaphorical background to the work. Some of these works present views from an extra-corporeal perspective and others from an internal landscape, likening this to the external world.

 

Most recently I have been developing work related to alchemy – both 2D and 3D work. The series starts with the alchemical concepts of transmutation of metals, works through some of the cryptic symbolism attached to the idea and practice of early alchemists, and is now continuing with the idea of the textures and colour changes in the degradation of metals.

 

Alongside my printmaking practice I am also making artist books, presenting poetry in art has become a passion.
