Christmas Print Show

Article text
Sizewell I Monotype 2014
A new set of monotypes or Mono - prints by Kim are currently on Show as part of a special Printmakers Show the work will be on display from Friday 31st October up to Christmas.

The view from Dunwich Heath out across towards Minsmere is one I return to most often, this set of recent prints are very free and made with a limited palette. I have painted the oil based ink directly onto a zinc plate, then passed the plate and paper through a press at slightly less pressure than needed for intaglio prints (such as etchings) This produces a unique one off image.

However occasionally if the plate still looks interesting I will pass the plate through a second time with a fresh piece of paper, this produces a fainter print known as a 'Ghost print'
