This art print is a digital reproduction of my original Collagraph and Screenprinted Collage.
Title: The Swaying Seeds
Collage is one of my favourite things to do. As a printmaker you tend to have lots of paper either left over or sometimes intentionally printed with a view of making further pictures. The original of this picture is exactly that. It's made using torn up pieces of collagraph prints and screen prints - there's even some machine stitching going on too!
This listing is for one digital reproduction, the mount is included.
Picture measures: width: 12 cm x height 12 cm
Artwork including mount: width: 23 cm x height: 23 cm
The print comes wrapped in cellophane in a cardboard back padded envelope.
What's a Collagraph?
A collagraph is an assemblage of various materials (textured papers, plaster, plastics, fabric) and these are glued onto a printing plate, which is usually cardboard.
The plate is then sealed using shellac / varnish and left to dry. Once the plate is dry it is ready to be inked up using oil or water based ink.
Paper is prepared and place on top of the inked plate. It then goes through a printing press. The paper is then carefully lifted off the plate to reveal the image.
Then if you are like me... you end up reworking some of the printed papers to make collages such as the titled picture above: The Swaying Seeds.
