The Traditionalist

State I

$400 AUD

15cm x 15cm hand-pulled copper etching print, unframed.

The Traditionalist is just a man who is himself. In this modern world with its strong reliance on electronically generated imagery, he has been created using old world skills and techniques. The copper plate etching process is done entirely by hand using a multi-stage process.

The plate is handmade, inked up by hand using Gamblin brand etching ink and printed on Fabriano Rosaspina 280gsm paper using a traditional hand turned etching press. This print version is the first etch state for this work - First state linework.

As each print is individually inked and pulled only once by hand in my studio, the results always vary minutely and each print, whilst part of an edition set, is unique.

Image size 15 x 15cm, paper size 21 x 25cm. Limited to just 5 archival prints.
