Breaking down – building up

ellyp artworks, Uncategorized

In my last post I showed one of my latest works, drypoint printed in 4 monoprints with chine collé. It was time to move on, new areas to explore. I cut the plate in four. Could I make each part work as a separate image? Worth a try I thought.

I started out with two of my new plates, combined with chine collé, and also other smaller drypoint plates. Working with these plastic plates have the advantage they can be so easily cut, even with scissors, and I can build up my print by putting them on top of each other before printing, to see how it will work out.

This is just the first few prints from two of the plates plates, and I will surely follow it up…so stay tune.
