About the artwork

Bermondsey Street Monotype and Photo-etching, ink on paper Signed limited edition of 100 Sophie’s work consists of a series of monotypes that explore light and an aim to create expression through the use of colour to achieve a rich, painterly quality in print, incorporating photo-etched imagery within her monotypes. The trial and error nature of making monotypes is more organic than many printmaking processed and offers an immediacy with results happening quickly. Made bye exposing UV light onto a sheet of steel through a negative of the image, this is then put into acid which corrodes the metal where the light has not been able to pass through which becomes the shadows and dark spaces due to the ink remaining in the textured areas. Primary coloured inks are played onto a palette and after mixing the paint, the image is then created by rolling very thin layers of ink onto a sheet of aluminium which is then run through the press. This creates a mirror image of what has been laid down and by going back and forth from palette to press the image and painterly quality is achieved.
