Description of On The Surface
This is called a collagraph. The design is an abstract. I called it on the surface as it appears to me as a pond with things that float on the surface. Although others may see something different. A collagraph is made by taking a surface like a mat board and building up a low relief of texture. After Sealing the plate you then ink it and run it through a press on to printmaking paper. This was printed using a viscosity method. Different layers of ink were run over the plate each one with a different quantity of plate oil. Then you see what magic happens when you pull the print. I did this in a few various colors. This one is framed under glass with an oak color frame. Ready to hang on your wall!
