Project Minimal: Seventh page

Low tide at Bellambi Point dog beach. It’s a place I visit regularly and I’ve many, many photos of rock pools, surf, sea grasses, sand undulations, shells and discarded detritus.

From paper I cut three abstract shapes. This piece was laid over a sheet of 3mm foamex board which was then scored using an Xacto blade and a .5mm cutting tool.

Ink was applied using hand made ‘dollies’ à la poupée (i.e. a doll-shaped bundle of fabric is used to apply different colours to different areas of a single plate, which is then printed in the usual way).

Finished print:

300gsm Hahnemuhle warm white paper, oil-based printing ink
