About the Image: "Oppression" was inspired by my experiences as a student working towards my Master of Fine Arts Degree. I'd been practicing printmaking for few years prior to my acceptance into the MFA program, and I nievely expected to be accorded a status slightly higher than that of a first year student. It was not to be and my so the student/supervisor relationship that I experienced spawned this piece. "Oppression" is an emotional journey experessed in abstract terms.

  • This is an original work of art created within the printmaking medium of Etching. This intaglio image has been printed in black etching ink.

    Method: Once I am satisfied with the image, I print the edition using either black etching ink or a combination of coloured etching ink and modified litho ink. The paper is pre-soaked in water for two hours, blotted to remove the excess water and sealed in a plastic bag. It is left overnight to allow the water to "equalize". The paper feels only slightly moist when I am printing the edition. I print all my own work using either a direct pressure lithographic press or an etching press. My Editions are small with 2 to 10 prints per Edition.

    Printmaking is generally a time-consuming process, but each printmaking medium has unique visual characteristics that are not found in any other medium. I find this to be the most interesting and exciting aspect of creating original works of art in printmaking.

    Purchase includes a copy of the Canadian Print Documentation Form filled out by me while creating this work of art. This form documents the number of runs, colours, and procedures that I used when creating this image.
