Producing this collection of collagraphs has rekindled my love of printmaking, a process which, every day, gives me a glimpse of something completely different and new in the work. It is rare to regularly catch ones images unawares and it is exhilarating.
This process of printing one colour at a time on each print of the edition, slowly building up to the final image, has, by its nature become part of the subject matter. It tells of a journey, of finding my way, of exploring 'gardens', sometimes still, sometimes full of life and full of history. I am the zebra and the monkey and the buck, often unseen, watching and listening.
