city series

artist statement:

These works are  an investigation of  layers to a city .

As we observe from our city windows

from a plane or as we approach;

the city unfolds like an onion

peeling away its many layers and facets.


Process: This series of prints  was created over a long span of time. The prints  on handmade paper were started in 1987. The paper was made and the initial silkscreen was put on . These were then left for  almost 30 years to percolate -then finally pulled out and dusted off ( literally)  to be completed.

The finishing layers of silkscreen prints started a whole new series of city prints on coloured or fancy gold leaf papers.
