Soft Ground Prints in upcoming exhibit at BCA Center
December 6, 2010
This is a small selection from an ongoing series of prints. these impressions were created over the summer. I use a soft ground technique to transfer the texture and shape of a fine nylon cord to the zinc plate. I create a family of intaglio metal plates which I ink and use in various combination, reusing plates to make “Ghost images” and take advantage of offset images. Each print is made with multiple registrations. Final images are 9″ x 9″ on 19″ x 15″ paper. Each print is unique.
