Power & Pop Print Series (2016-2019)

The Power & Pop print series is my most current portrait style print series using the photopolymer (solar) plate technique. The prints are produced in a high colour, high impact style that reflects the celebrity and infamy of the subjects. Original mug shots have been used as the source imagery and reworked by hand prior to exposing the solar plate. Prints have been prepared with a number of additional processes including colour rollup, chine-colle, collage, hand drawing with pencil and charcoal and even the old embossing Demo labeller.

Each finished print is a one-off unique state or a small edition of no more than 5 prints with the majority of images being small format 30 x 20 cm. The prints produced in the series have been successfully exhibited in solo exhibition at Gauge Gallery, Glebe and Ten Thousand Paces Gallery, Bowral over 2017 and 2018. New works are being worked on presently for a future exhibition.
