Printing at Megalo

Back at the Megalo Studio this week for another session of printing. In the gallery there is a review show of all the 2012 Megalo artists-in-residency. Some lovely work including that of Jan Hogan, whose interactions with the landscape are always thoughtful.

The process I’m using works by building-up layers of images. I print in layers so sometimes good images come quickly, other times they may take all day. This time it was only after lunch that I found my best images of the day.

I was pleased with the results of my new stencil:

An unexpected result was this very simple shape surrounding a landscape ‘found’ in the printing:

This reminded me of ‘landscape marble’ which is valued in China for its natural resemblance to Chinese brush painted landscapes.
