What’s this surprising item! Sometimes it’s nice to wiggle out from underneath the technical printing and let loose. This take me back to one of the first techniques I was shown as a wee printmaker, the colour fade.

I do a lot of colour mixing for print commissions at Mesh and Blade and I’ve been itching to do a series delving into the interaction of the colours that I would usually use in a far more constrained way. Each of these fades are a series of 5 unique prints created from the organised chaos of carefully chosen coloured inks, interacting live on screen.

Very excited to be collaborating with Seraphina Neville who has carefully selected some of the artist proofs to create a series of paper cut collages from.
