About Theresa Pateman

 
 
  • Biography

    My main medium is Printmaking, I love getting involved with the different techniques, from the most complex to very basic, and simple Mono Printing can be very satisfying. There is nothing better than going to the workshop, closing the door and shutting out all other daily preoccupations, focusing on an idea , and  producing the work. It can be easy, or painful, but the hardest part is getting your work on show, so this is an opportunity to do that.
    I love etching in soft ground and aquatint, but currently I enjoy working in drypoint on plastic and shaping the plates, it is much more immediate. Basically a plate is created in which lines are incised - either by wax ground and acid, or scratching directly into the plate surface (drypoint). Then ink is rubbed into the marks on the plate, damp paper placed on top, and the whole thing run through an etching press. The pressure of the rollers transfers the image in reverse onto the paper. The print can vary because you are painting with ink. This is the difference between an Original print and a Giclee (ink jet) print, it's all done by hand.
