Vicky Oldfield artist and printmaker, ‘Cardoon’ is a hand coloured collagraph print, the print is taken from a plate which has been collaged with a variety of textured materials. The plates are then sealed and then inked up and printed in intaglio on damp paper using an etching press. The embossed textural quality of the print is unique to this method.
Due to the process the editions are variable, which means each print is completely unique.
