A work on paper, so apply care accordingly.
My recommendation for maximum lifespan would be to keep it out of direct sunlight and/or mount in a frame with UV protect glass/plastic, hang at room temperature and without excess moisture (i.e. not in a kitchen or bathroom). But it’s your work so more importantly, ignore all that and hang somewhere you’ll enjoy it!
About Relief Printing:
A relief print means that you print off of the block’s surface, and can be printed with over and over again.
For this print process, I used an collagraph plate. This is a collage that is varnished and ready to be printed. I then inked up the surface of the plate using a roller, leaving ink on ay of the raised areas and showing off all the different textures. I then placed a piece of paper on top and ran through a press. The image is transferred from the surface and into the paper.
All works on paper are notoriously difficult to photograph accurately. The best efforts have been made to get the colours and tones in the photograph to match the product, however, colours may vary in different lights and differ from the image shown. If you would like to arrange to view the print in person, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
