61EVR

61EVR, four-colour photogravure, 14 × 17.6 cm, 2009. In an attempt to integrate colour into my work, the first images I made built on my previous work, the Townsite House Project.

66CS

61CS, four-colour photogravure, 14 × 17.6 cm, 2009. Instead of using film, I created digital colour photographs in response to two Townsite Homes.

61EVR&66CS

61EVR Pentimento, four plate photogravure, 14 × 17.6 cm, 2009. In considering their potential as four-colour photogravures, I played with combining plates from the two images, creating a composite but maintaining the dominance of one source space. The magenta and black plates are from 61EVR and the yellow and cyan plates from 66CS.

66CS&61EVR

66CS Pentimento, four plate photogravure, 14 × 17.6 cm, 2009. This is the second composite and the cyan and black plates are from 66CS and the magenta and yellow are from 61EVR. Making these prints represented a significant technical learning curve. While these images contain the artifacts of technological problems, this experiment confirmed that creating four-colour images by hand could be playful and move beyond the reproductive.
