|Drifting too far from the Shore, Papercut|
Some photos of the Fischer King series, framed and hanging in my MA degree show. The series is a combination of handmade papercuts and reduction woodcuts. I made a set of each of the images in each process and picked a combination for the show. To see the complete series have a look at my flickr account.

All my work is low tech and fairly labour intensive. The images all begin as drawings, some elements from life some from imagination. Usually once i have an image i'm happy with i will then make it as a papercut. This involves cutting freehand into the paper without marking the surface first. For this series my papercuts have a monoprinted grey background. The act of papercutting allows me to take the sketch process into a visual form visually reminiscent of relief printing. My woodcuts are reduction cuts on found wood, and can include between 6-10 layers of ink. I also hand burnish my prints with a baren or wooden spoon.

Flying high in the realms of procrastination- putting off my written work. Here is a little preview of my contribution to the MA multi-disciplinary printmaking degree show next week. I'm going to be showing three hand papercuts and two hand burnished woodcuts from my Fischer King series. Once the shows over i'll upload some better images!
The degree show opens next Friday evening- 7th June and runs until Thurs 13th at the UWE Bower Ashton campus in Bristol. It's all hung now and it looks great, so come along i you can.
