The prints shown here are an exploration of the changes in appearance of images when translating digital images to an analogue printing process. Printmaking has been for me of the best ways to examine the elusive, yet physical, nature of colour. The process and the material supporting an image influence the appearance and the meaning. Printmaking while doing a PhD is a way of externalise thoughts. Can a single picture of flowers reflect my heritage? Can the agency of materials in printed recreations can resuscitate ancient stucco relieves, when using the original colourants? Can the translucency of a veil act as a transversal spiritual allegory?
My last study with screen printing and lithography was about the (extra)ordinary image of a fern taken with a mobile phone in The Botanical Gardens in Bath, England during the second lockdown. This image is a symbol of freedom in the liminal moments of nature, and simultaneously within a context is a reminiscence the popular botany studies in Victorian times contemporary to the full-blown industrialisation and the shift towards a machine-driven world.
