This image follows the petrus prints to another stage of development. Taking the soil samples and forming the Petrus prints I have expanded the image into the artistic practice known as Biomorphism. During the Modern Art era there was a movement associated with freeform imagery that became known as biomorphism. This print continues in this tradition but through the use of the woodcut print and overlaying into two forms, as though one is morphing into or out from one another. In this this print explores the division of cellular life and the replication process associated with the evolution of life and akin to the evolution of this printmaking process.
This opens another line of enquiry into printmaking process and the evolution of printing from woodcut prints exploring the role of evolution, biology and my concern with re-looking at elements from Modern Art and its contribution to Postmodernism and Contemporary art.
The trail in white is my walking pathway in Bristol visiting the Old City and walking from Temple Meads to the Docks then onto Leonard Lane and up Park Road to the RWA gallery.
