1992 - 1993

A series of experimental prints combining various print techniques; collagraph/silkscreen. Etching on copper, zinc and steel with elements of chine colle on distressed paper. Liquid light and the use of found objects from the streets of Barcelona.

During this period I worked as assistant printmaker at the Barcelona workshop of Masafumi Yamamoto editioning work of other artists using the viscosity technique and stencils. Yamamoto was famous for not only developing his own unique prints but editioned the work of Catalan artists including Joan Miro.

'The Burning' was an installation of 6 pieces on burnt handmade paper exploring themes of transition and exorcism.

'Memory Stroked' was a major installation piece consisting of collagraph and.silkscreen that explored themes of transformation.
