This work was inspired by recent colours found in nature. Shades of vivid green shoots now have started to appear- even the odd daffodil or two emerging from their wintery sleep, as they grow in a nearby church yard; This illuminating how the manmade and natural world can thrive in the same space.
In Urban Traces I, I have combined the colours of nature and manmade materials, by using watercolour as the backdrop to print collagraph plate on top. Various manmade substances such as plastics,textured card, sand paper, string, hessian, and fabrics were used along with imprints from manmade objects.
Although the original collagraph was made in 2011 as part of a project 'Journeys' , seeing the recent colours in nature inspired me to consider and explore these ideas and create Urban Traces.
Please note the limited edition of 30 includes all the series of Urban Traces formats - due to the collagraph plates fragility, I am unable to produce more than the edition stated...the series includes images of one, two or four images on paper. Each image is a unique work no two will be the same.
