A giclée (fine art) copy of an A3 collagraph.
I've worked in the Jewellery Quarter for a number of years and grew up nearby, I've loved seeing the area develop and evolve over the past 28 years. This piece was inspired by the iconic architecture of the Jewellery Quarter some of which have been there for hundreds of years, others that are much more modern. I created the original using intaglio collagraph printing technique, which gives a very similar effect to etching.
What is giclée? A fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve an inkjet print of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
About the original printing technique: Collagraph is a cost effective technique which essentially just requires a scalpel and a sheet of mount-board. You score into mount-board allowing you to be very detailed, you can also peel back the top layer of the board on certain segments that you wish the ink to cling to most.
