'Keep' (a collagraph with relief text)
Collagraphs and wood-cuts

From about 2011 I have been trying to make some print works on paper to complement my print on clay. This is a long-term project. Collagraph and wood-cut seem to offer a chance to respond to my 'source data' (headlines, newspaper texts, advertising signs, the NASA web-site...) in a different way, with surprising results, allowing me to express my feelings about landscape.

In collagraph one uses a firm cardboard base which can be built up or cut into. In woodcut one can use a plywood base and a variety of tools to cut into the surface.
