A collagraph is a print that is made from a matrix that is usually a collage made from objects with different textures. The matrix is painted or inked and then printed on a variety of papers, many times, Japanese rice papers.
I used the same matrix for several prints, varying the colors or saturation. I also printed each on three different papers--two rice papers and one standard Fabriano cotton paper. Different papers accept the inks differently and can vary the results. Since the matrix was painted separately for each print, there is also variations in colors.
The photos here show two of these--one on a Japanese paper --has been framed and is in a printmaking exhibition. It will be listed separately after March 5, 2016 if it is not sold. It is professionally and custom framed using archival materials.
These are the only three prints that will be made using this matrix.
Please study the photos closely and let me know which one you would like me to send you. Since they are not framed, I will ship it rolled into a very secure mailing tube.
