How this was made

These framed prints are original collagraph prints. Each has been hand-inked individually using the intaglio method, and run through my intaglio (roller) press.

Collagraph simply means: a print taken from a collage.

The collage plates incorporate a variety of materials, including: couscous, embroidery thread, carborundum grit, and textured wallpaper. After the collage materials were stuck onto the thick board base, varnish was applied for protection. Then the plates were inked manually before printing onto damp paper.

The inspiration for the Gossip series came from a doodle I was doing one day, of two wine glasses on our kitchen windowsill. I began to add noses to the silhouette shapes, and suddenly they were people! There is a suggestion of diversity in each of the duos I placed together, although they all appear to be female. Do men gossip? At any rate, I think these prints would be a nice gift for a friend.
