Water Gelli prints Aug 2014 low

I have decided to try and write something on this blog every 2 weeks – so here I am ! A quick update on the ‘Bees’ that took over a couple of weeks ago – I wrote an article for a well-known U.S. magazine, which will be published in their Jan/Feb edition. More news on that nearer the time.


Another spate of new works, on a watery theme, for the Espacio Gallery Wind, Wood & Water exhibition, Sept.4th-9th.

These are all monotype prints, from collagraph plates, or simply hand drawn onto Gelli plates.

I have had a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding couple of weeks, printing and collaging bees & honeycombs. All kicked off by a small hexagonal rubber that I used to print with bleach onto ink. Magic !  Then came some rubber-stamped bees….and that was it. hooked ! I ended up cutting 3 different bee  lino blocks,  2 flat honeycombs and a negative honeycomb on a rolling pin to give a continuous repeat.  And it does !! (good ol’ Goldsmiths training proving useful again, after almost 40 years !) Some of these will be shown in the Espacio Gallery Original Print Fair, Bethnal Green , London – October 2nd-14th.
