More press work














My printwork at Christine Lock's press in Marlow continues to grow in terms of techniques and ideas. During last weekend's session I was working on introducing some figure work into the foreground of some pieces I had done sometime back.

It's done by taking figure drawings, from my Moleskines, distilling them down to basic shapes, silhouettes, inking them up and putting them through the press on top of the image already there. Early results are insteresting and add a new twist to the journey in monoprint.

The figures add a engaging ambiguity to the work - another dimension.
