In these PLATE EXPERIMENTS I cut shapes out of Sheet Zinc using a Dremmel cutter. I used a small drill and a series of fine needle files to refine the profile and smooth and bevel the edges.
The shapes are based on some Rorasch Ink Blots that I made.
The plates were then etched with Leaf-Prints in Soft Ground. I took a few prints of the plates, using my favourite Prussian Blue ink.
The plates themselves have a Sculptural Quality, which I utilized by installing them with my new DARK MIRROR sculpture.
The bottom two pictures in this gallery ate prints taken from prepared plates placed on a HARMONOGRAPH, with a Stylus replacing the pen on the drawing arm. The machine was set in action, and the resulting drawings etched and printed.
The last image is a small photo-etching of a Flame Fractal that I generated on Scott Draves' Apophysis programme, which came out of my METAMORPHOSIS project.
