To create these artworks I use a spontaneous form of printmaking where the texture of a found object forms a delicate impression onto a handmade, inked gelatin matrix. A manual printing process follows which involves placing vintage, handmade or repurposed papers onto the inked matrix and burnishing the paper by hand.
Because of the serendipitous nature of gelatin printmaking, each monoprint is unique in appearance and cannot exactly be re-created.
To create more complex images, further impressions can be made to the original print by adding additional ink to the matrix, repositioning the objects and repeating the print process.
