Image Size: H 15cm x W 20cm
Mount Size: H 34cm x W 43cm
A dog barks at the moon. This nocturne by Tim Southall is inspired by his own dog who ventures out every night to bark for anyone who will listen. This print is a multi-plate etching and aquatint and the richness of colour is very much a result of this process. The image is made on four copper plates, one printed over another and then another, the overprinting giving a much denser colour. It is hand-printed onto a heavyweight 300 gram handmade at St Cuthbert’s Mill in Somerset, England and is in a limited edition of 75 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Tim Southall was born in Staffordshire in 1961 and grew up on the edge of heavy industrial heartlands of the Black Country. He studied Fine Art at Northumbria University and then printmaking Royal College of Art and l’école des beaux art, Paris. Based in London for twenty years, in 2001 Tim moved to the beautiful countryside of the Costa de la Luz – the coast of light – in Cadiz Province, southern Spain.
