Artist's description:

Comrades

On a lonely windswept hilltop in the middle of England lies the church of St Mary and St Hardulph, at Breedon-on-the-hill, Leicestershire. Here once stood an Iron Age fort and the Christian tradition of the site goes back to AD676. This print comprises my version of two of the carved characters found within. The message of these figures lies in the eye of the beholder, their authors' intention has long been forgotten. My own take and placement of the two is autobiographical.

This print is pulled from an engraving cut out of a sheet of rubber, and is a variation of letterpress printing. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the remaining rubber is rolled up with ink and pressed to paper. The total number of prints in this case is closed at five and the printing plate discarded.

The print comprises oil-based black ink on high quality acid free paper and should present no keeping difficulties. The image measures 5x6¼ inches on a 10x12 inch sheet and will fit straight into a standard 10x12 inch frame.

Materials used:

black oil-based printing ink, Hahnemuhle etching paper 300gsm
