A giclée print that features the iconic lighthouse of a small town called Happisburgh in Norfolk. Happisburgh has really suffered from erosion the last 20-30 years, as like much of the English coast where defenses were abandoned by the government. This piece is a collage inspired by the remains of the houses that have been and gone along the cliff front, remembering the loved homes of the people who once lived there.
The original print was created using a technique called Intaglio collagraph, it gives a very similar effect to etching.
The size of the central print is roughly 15x15cm and the overall paper size measures approximately 30 x 21cm including artists signature, the paper size is A4. The print is on high quality 350gsm acid free watercolour paper and is hand signed.
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.
What is Intaglio Collagraph? It 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.
Signed by myself (the artist) and the paper size is tailored to standard frames.
HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE THAT FRAMES ARE NOT INCLUDED.
