We Sorted the Catch for Hours


I have done a number of pieces of from an image of these two  fishermen in paint, collage, collograph , using a single image of the fishermen as my inspiration.

original seascape print

This a collograph, the original plate used for making some of my collograph prints. I like the three dimensional feel that I can get from a plate. My inspiration has beeen the boats and ropes in the harbour. The ropes across the boats adding rythym and dynamics to the piece.

A collograph is made from a plate which has a collage of different materials firmly glued to the block of card or wood. Materials used as collage can include different textured papers, wallpaper, string, string mesh,corrugated card, fabric, tissue paper, sandpaper scrim, muslin, sculpted p.v.a glue, cereal cartons, and seeds such as rice.

I like the 3D effect of the collograph itself . This collograph was inked and wiped and used severl times to make collograph prints before being mounted as an art work in itself.

This piece is mounted on a 4.5 cm  wide and 4 cm deep pale grey wood frame.
