the rose (2022)
a soft message for hard times

description ༄

blind embossment chine-collé 'drawing' inspired by Nature's ever-giving..nature. She's the center of the vesica piscis and symbol of the feminine principle, the divine container in which new creation begins to form and germinate ~ the coming together of opposites and healing of the split.

materials ༄
blind embossment and chine-collé on Fabriano etching paper, watercolour - each piece is unique and will have small variations in the shape, placement and hue of the (chine-collé) paper and coloured details.
signed and stamped on the verso side of the paper

dimensions  ༄
150 x 200 mm (unframed)
210 x 270 mm (framed)

the work includes a light wooden box frame without glass, with mount


a blind-embossment (also known as debossing) is the process of pressing a design or pattern into the surface of paper or cardstock without adding any ink or foil. The result is a raised, tactile image that can be seen and felt. A delicate, subtle relief in paper, made in my studio with a heavy etch press.

for some pieces I combine this technique with chine-collé; I add a small torn piece of thin handmade Chinese or Japanese paper in the middle of the etching paper, then I place the plate with the design on top and roll it through the etch press.

lino-cutting is the technique I use for creating most molds or plates that carry the design; I draw on a piece of linoleum (made of linseed oil, pine resin and cork dust) and remove the lines with lino cutting tools. With a mold I can create a few pieces, each slightly different due to the qualities and differences of the paper - some of them finished with a touch of coloured pencil.
