New Printmaking Work

Filed under: News — Zachary @ 1:52 pm

This year’s Bow Arts Trust Open Studios event is coming up soon (June 29th and 30th) and I will have a new type of work to show. I have been exploring linocut printing this year, my first foray into printmaking, and am really enjoying both the process and some of the kinds of results you can get. As opposed to painting you can keep playing around with the final result after it is finished, with colours and application of inks. And as opposed to digital prints it is also still a physical process, and I find the oil based inks I am using leave aesthetically pleasing textured layers. It is also a lot of work doing all the pressing by hand so I might have to invest in a press at some point. I will put some of the results up to show soon!
