LIMITED EDITION ETCHINGS
My work focuses a lot on shadows and capturing that ephemeral quality that a shadow has. With these etchings, I wanted to highlight the opposite to shadows and by using photography I exposed the trees to capture the light instead of the darkness.
What are etchings:
Etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio(incised) in the metal As a method of printmaking, it is, along with engraving, the most important technique for old master prints, and remains in wide use today.
‘THE LIGHT BETWEEN TREES’
My latest block of shadows was born from the gloom of this year’s June. Pockets of white sky flitted between the frail twigs and branches. I noticed that there were these beautiful abstract shapes between the leaves, and I wanted to explore that within my painting.
ALL AVAILABLE WORK
Please note: my work is mainly painted onto Japanese paper so trying to capture this for online can be tricky. Do ask for photos or studio visits can be arranged, if you would like to come view the work in person.
