Description

From a small limited edition of just 5 prints

Image size without border 27.5 x 11 cm
Paper size 36 x 19 cm 210gsm Zerkall printmaking paper

This original collagraph is of the world famous El Castillo pyramid in the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza. The textured plate is inked with a blend of grey with touches of purples, blues and pinks to recreate the limestone of this area which is, perhaps surprisingly, very similar to the geology of my home county of Yorkshire.

A collagraph plate is made by building up the image with texture and collage. Ink is then applied by hand before the plate is passed through an etching press with dampened paper. This method produces not only vibrantly coloured images but also an embossed effect on the paper.

The hand made nature of the process, and the fact that the plate is inked up from scratch each time, means that every print will be unique; the images above are examples and your print might not be identical to the ones shown here. It will be delivered to you unframed for safe shipping. It will be backed by card and wrapped in cellophane and carefully protected with tissue paper and stiff cardboard.

Inspiration

This image comes from a memorable holiday in Mexico in early 2017. Visiting Chichen Itza meant getting up at 5.30am and driving for a bumpy hour and a half on a hot minibus, but it was absolutely worth it.
