Artwork description:

This monotype print consists of locally sourced rocks collected from around the town of Watchet in Somerset. The rocks where ground and made into printing ink using the various colours of the rocks. This was produced after reading the research and life of the scientist Srinivasa Ramanujan. Later I watched the film Ramanujan. He had travelled from India to Cambridge and contributed much to the understanding of mathematics, physics and he often said, "An equation for me has no meaning unless it represents a thought of God." (1).

This print was a way to explore his thinking through my thoughts and how this energetic information running through my mind would convey itself through monotype printing methods, capturing something from the process and evidencing in this type of epigenetic/ thought processing creativity.

Each layer of rock interacts and collaborates with my mind, my hands, the pressure applied and the resultant marks made in relation to the thoughts about Ramanujan.
