About Storey's printmaking process:
The use of technique here is with drypoints. A sharp steel scriber has been used to score into either an aluminium or plastic plate, here I have used plastic. Ink is then wiped onto the surface before being carefully wiped off. Ink sits in the scored areas. I have deliberately left thick areas of ink in some places and also reapplied ink where I feel too much has been wiped away or where I want additional colour (a la poupée).
A piece of damp paper is placed over the plate before they are rolled through the press together to produce the print. Ink from the scored grooves is squeezed onto the paper along with traces of additional ink added a la poupée.
Combining an interest in the permanence of talisman like objects from the natural world and the fragility of species and habitat, Sandra Storey draws on printmaking processes and mixed media to explore her ideas.
