Rock Pool 2002
Rock Pool is printed from a photopolymer plate. The technique used was intaglio with a transparent roll of colour using Charbonnel inks printed onto damp Magnani Pescia 300gsm paper. Additional texture was added to the original plate with a mixture of acrylic gel medium and carborundum. The amorphous shapes and rough textural areas suggest the organic marine life found in coastal rock pools. The solid mass of rock, deep shady recesses and the clear cool light reflecting on sandy surfaces are the source of inspiration for this work.
