It is always said that January & February are the worst months of the year; they certainly feel like it at the moment. Lack of light is hindering the development of experimentation with freezing processes. The days are short and the never-ending overcast days do not give rise to the opportunity of working with the daylight. Paid employment restricts the times I am able to work with pure daylight; going out in the dark and returning as its getting dark limits the documentation of processes through photography.
While I wait for the days to get longer I continue to develop a series of Intaglio prints into hand made paper using dried grasses from the summer; collected from the surrounding countryside and dead grasses that still linger in the garden. This process sustains a continued thread of 'making' and 'experimentation' generating work that could potentially be used as part of an exhibition in the future.
