No two prints can be exactly the same and it is this element of surprise that I enjoy and that gives rise to the title that refers to the mysteries of print making, the natural world and most mysterious of all - love. I found intriguing the idea that two circles and a square can make a heart just as two people together can bring about love.
For this aquatint printed with oil based ink on Somerset paper I passed the metal acid etched plate through the press several times and did not ink the circle and square so that the pressure of press left an embossed shape where I put the circles and square, one after the other.
Each print is created using the same metal plate and circles and square, but printed with different colour combinations and thicknesses of ink. Each print is therefore absolutely unique and an edition varie of 30. This particular version is numbered 11/30.
