Etchings and Aquatints

The process of etching and aquatinting is all consuming, meditate, smelly and you have to draw everything in reverse (like most printmaking) so its often perplexing. The prints are mainly cones of different kinds. They are isolated, complete forms. I’m not sure I know why I chose them, probably for their visual appeal, sense of pattern but also for their ability to stand alone and their strangeness.

These were made at Spike Island Print Studio a few years ago now. I have quite a few prints for sale. If you are interested email
