Untitled - Risograph Overprint
Collage on Risograph print
Risograph print, Paper
A3 size (42cm x 29.7cm)
*This series of works is made from collecting the overprints from the Risograph machine. Multiple sheets of paper are required to go through the machine to help figure out ink density and alignment of layers. I've been collecting the best ones that feature multiple layers of my artwork, sometimes this means they have been through the machine many times and the composition of the prints is entirely accidental. I've been using this collection to create new works, using some sheets as collage material and others as backgrounds. Please note that both sides of the paper will be printed on and that usually, these would end up in the recycling bin so they may not have been taken care of the same way a regular print would have been before I got hold of them. This second life aspect of these pieces is reflected in the price.
This is a handmade artwork made using various materials and methods, so traces of the process will be visible. For example cut marks, glue, slight creases, torn edges, rubbed out pencil marks, ink splodges, risograph roller marks, ghosting, bleaching, remnants of old work etc. In the spirit of a no-waste practice when it comes to using paper in my work I try to find a use for as many of the materials that pass through my studio and incorporate them into new works. I think this adds to the charm of the artwork and shouldn't be viewed as a flaw.
The Risograph print process uses a soy-based ink, this ink doesn't ever fully dry so some smudges are possible. If you smudge the work a regular pencil eraser should be able to correct the smudge. If you get it on your hands it will wash out with soapy water.
Although every effort has been made to faithfully replicate, the actual colours of the artwork may differ from that on screen.
