An embossed print edition on fine paper. The type of mark making on this print is more generally known as embossing, a process of printmaking that creates raised and depressed patterns onto – in this case – paper. For this particular print, I carved a hand drawn image into a linoleum plate, then ran it through my etching press with a dampened, fine rag paper (100% cotton, acid-free, chlorine-free).

This process of printmaking is also less generally known as inkless printing. Inkless printing is a method of printmaking that I use to explore the values of light and shadow in an image on a page. Instead of inking the prepared plate to reveal an intended image, I carve the image in such a way that, once impressed onto the page, it will appear in a 3D effect via shadow and light. In essence, when light hits the print at certain angles shadows occur amongst the rises and depressions within the embossed image; the shadow acts as the ink on the page, thereby causing the image to reveal itself.
Edition of 100.

Print measures: 13.6 cm x 19 cm (5 3/8 in. x 7 1/2 in.)
