Solitary Quest, Alone but not Forgotten
intaglio, inkjet chine collé
print 21 x 15 cm, 2015
paper Somerset Soft Velvet 250gsm 38 x 28 cm
unframed, edition of 12
The absurdity of human existence is shown in the cartoon-like characters and the mad stories they enact. The actor in an exotic architectural space is a central dynamic. Characters are variously beset by antagonistic tricksters, wicked witches, monsters and devils, false prophets, suitors and clowns.
The print is a combination of a photopolymer plate printed using the chine collé technique whereby a layer of Japanese paper with inkjet printed colour is adhered to the carrier sheet of paper when printed through the etching press.
