I’ve revisited a few of my favourite old collagraph plates and reprinted them as part of my ongoing Connectivity project.
I’ve always enjoyed jigsaws and these prints are made from a selection of small collagraph plates abutted to create that effect. Over time these plates have produced some of my best works; resulting in wall art, book covers and now book pages. The studio print tutor was very stressed that part of the top design didn’t fully print and white areas remain but I like that. My cut-away semi-rectangular shapes are quite deep and don’t always grab enough ink to fully complete the pattern, but the results work for me.
