Working on mono prints

26 Jun 2014

I have been asked to make some mono prints for an exhibition in London. I haven’t done any printing for ages so I was slightly anxious but as I am always up for a challenge I had a go and really enjoyed the process. I shall be doing more! This is a hand rubbed print on rice paper but I also did a few prints at Resort Studios in Margate, which has fabulous facilities.

The prints I am showing are non-literal translations of my drawings and compared to the drawings on paper the marks can be made much more quickly, although the entire process of producing the print is no quicker overall.
