New etching – ‘The MG’

26 Apr

I have now completed a larger etching of my Granddad and friends admiring an MG in the 1930s. It is part of the same series of work, but I have experimented further with mark-making in the soft ground and used a mezzotint burnisher to add highlights and reduce the cotton texture in some areas.

I also decided to print in a colour blend, rather that the usual black and white and am really pleased with the effect this has. Colours used were Raw Umber (Lawrence intaglio ink) and Turquoise Lake (Intaglio Printmakers ink).

Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair!

10 Oct

I was emailed earlier in the summer about taking part in the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair in London and am excited to have decided to take part! It looks like a great range of artist’s original prints will be on display and should be an opportunity to meet a wider printmaking community!

The exhibition takes place from the 17th – 20th November at the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich and is curated by the Brocket Gallery London.

I’ve decided to exhibit ‘Mezzo-type’, my mezzotint from last year, and ‘Rocker’ as they were particularly interested in my embossed pieces and these combine different methods and will work well displayed together! I am particularly proud of ‘Mezzo-type’ as it was a real labour of love, and although it is a bit different to my most recent work, I do intend to do a twin print in the next year of another printmaking machine from the John Jarrold Printing Museum in Norwich.

Watch this space, and share the exhibition link! It’s going to be a fantastic showcase of printmaking from across the UK!
