Printing (2011 - 2013)

Below is the video posted online by the Open College of the Arts regarding the portfolio of work I submitted for the printing course assessment.

Drowning

This was my final piece. It’s a cut and woven print which was meant to be viewed in landscape perspective (not portrait as depicted in the OCA video above). The figure is a self-portrait and the background represents water. I was paying homage to John Everett Millais’ “Ophelia”. The figure was a soft linocut, the background plate was made using a soldering iron on a yoga mat.

Practice print for "Drowning"

In the practice piece the figure was upright and wading through mud.
