Items locked in our memory are usually put there by an inner automation. We cannot delete items yet other information can go astray. It would seem that the memory has its' own priorities and agenda. Wavering links to people or places or times can become distorted and float around the pools of the mind to the bedevilment of the old and frail. But we all have tenuous links and sometimes they can be built on. This print might, say, represent a doctor beginning to link symptoms to diagnosis and treatment.
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 three 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.
