Sunset, Thames Barrier Print Studio

3 November 2014

At about 4.30 this afternoon, this was the view from the window of the studio where I do my printing at Thames Barrier Print Studio. I was working on 2 new plates today, it wasn’t going too well I left one of the plates in the acid too long and had some foul biting, then I saw this sunset and my spirits lifted.

Etching: Ordinary Courage

Theo Clinkard was invited to present the emotionally charged Ordinary Couragea dance concerned with loss and inspired by the death of his mother, at The Danzalborde Festival in Valparaiso and at GAM in Santiago, Chille. Theo needed to raise £5000 to get the 6 dancers and musician to South America. Undaunted, Theo started a crowd-funding campaign, met their target in time and is now back in the UK.

This 2 plate etching was made after drawing the dance at the beginning of the year. The etching wasn’t working and I felt lost with it and put the plates to one side. Recently I began to work on it again, I cut the plates down to create a smaller more intimate space, then to tried the addition of chine collé, here is the result

Ordinary Courage.

 

Theo and I are both Resident Artists at Greenwich Dance.

This will be  in the Greenwich Printmakers next exhibition, opening 11th November – Sunday 4th January, as well as in my Open Studio 15 – 16th November
