The MATRIX aquatints are constructed from plates which carry the silhouette of architectural blocks printed one on top of the other. This accumulation of black conveys a sense of inner embodied darkness and presence. Each plate is created with rosin ground by hand, the resulting particles gently sifted through a sieve before being heated to make a granular ground.

Frame specifications:
Matt black powder-coated aluminium frame with clean welded corners (lined with paper-faced aluminium sealing tape and Volara tape to underside of rebate); Artglass AR 92 glazing; 100% cotton-fibre museum rag boards and spacers; Japanese tissue paper hinges applied with purified wheat starch; rigid non-porous 3mm Dibond backing board with 5mm Coreflute polypropylene inner insulating/barrier board; sealed timber sub- frame with inbuilt split-batten hanging system for easy and secure wall attachment.
