Artist's description:

One mile North

To my eye this might be the view through a microscope. In fact it is a ground plan of the fields and woods about one mile to the North of where I live. From the land Man claims his living. Alas, it is what families squabble over and men fight and die for. The associations of heritage, pride and identity rather bewilder me, but I'm interested in the transitory marks where Man has attempted to impose his demands upon an organic situation.

This print is pulled from an engraving cut out of a sheet of recycled 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 four 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 8x10 inches, centred 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

One mile North (2016)
