Henry gets hung

I had two prints shortlisted for

The Summer Exhibition 2019 at the Royal Academy of Arts

both were selected but only one was hung.

As the print is quite dark, I framed it in a charcoal-coloured stained moulding, glazed with low-reflectance glass. Above is the lucky print waiting to be hung.

This picture shows me pulling a print of Wells Cathedral on a Rochat press.
Before finalising the image, I made 30 working proofs trying different inks, papers, colours and techniques.
Eventually, I chose a tinted chine collé laid over a Wells-made ‘Somerset’ paper. The chine collé is a conservation-grade paper made by hand in Japan. 

The print is on show in Gallery VII at the RA (no. 1070) until 12 August and can also be found in their online catalogue.
