January 2019

We’ve just had a 3-week break from college and I took the opportunity to experiment with several ideas using Photoshop; I also printed off an aquatint/sugar-lift plate and made several matrices from different materials to print from over the coming weeks.

I’m going to etch onto lino using caustic soda and I also want to get back into making gum bichromates/cyanotypes this semester.

During the holiday we went to London and I took the opportunity to visit several exhibitions and galleries: Richard Long at Alan Cristea, Barbara Rae at Canada House, the V&A where I saw work by Cornelia Parker and the National Portrait Gallery, all of which were inspiring in different ways.
