A relatively new technique of lithography, originating in Japan. Done on wood rather than stone, you can see the grain of the wood in the background.

Prints from my 2019 exhibition at Beaver Galleries, entitled 'Instances'. The exhibition consisted of these photopolymer prints printed intaglio and two etchings. 'Instances' was an exploration of ideas about early humans, their discovery of the symbolic and our understanding of what 'humankind' is.

In the past, in all my adventures in printmaking, I'd never much been drawn to lithography. Partly it didn't really suit my cartoony style. But now I find myself loving the act of drawing for itself more and more, and find I'm now drawn (haha) to lithography. Gently making marks on the stone, patiently building up the darks, watching the strange alchemy that fuses the image to the stone.
A couple of years ago I had a sudden urge to make ceramics, especially little figures in porcelain. I love having a piece of clay that you pinch and push around, and eventually it becomes something with character. I grouped them in pairs and trios, that gave them a narrative, even though I wasn't always sure what that narrative was.
