Counterbalance blue – photopolymer etch large

DSC_0315I have printed many versions of this plate as mono  prints in trying to make my final inking choices and some interesting outcomes emerged. I have framed and sold a few. This one is on show now and hopefully will be shown in the inaugeral Hawkesbury Printmakers Inc exhibition in February.

Small photopolymer etch 2012

DSC_0337This was my smallest plate and this particular one was my Hawkesbury Art Prize entry (which was not in the final selection unfortunately). I chose this print for its relevance to my theme of ‘counterbalance’ and the to Australian landscape also. Here we have present both symbols of fertility and the realities that eventuate out of it. The egg shape is gold and the viscocity roll overlay colour is a minty green referencing the Australian nationally recognised colours of green & gold. An interesting observation can be found in the echoing of the elips, round and egg like shape with the simple addition of the chine colle. Further to this, the chine colle egg seems transparent which gives the whole image more interest in my view to the below explorations of this photo-polymer etch.

Stack photopolymer chine colle etc…2012

DSC_0338

This is my best photopolymer plate and finished print in my opinion of all 2012 prints. I absolutely love the composition which is pushed right up to the top of the print which in turn eludes to a continuation of items stacked atop the visble ones. The gentle/subtle colouring is evidenced here too. I have sold a few of these but have to hold onto some for this years solo show.
