Zoetype - a short description

Zoetype is a printmaking process that involves the transfer of images
from a worked metal plate (etching, aquatint, sugarlift etc.) on to the paper,
via a woven cloth matrix, either directly or by retransfer on to a second metal plate.
This process gives the print a much greater range of tonal and textural effect.
The matrix can give a sharp relief with either its printed or unprinted side
or the two maybe used in combination.

All zoetypes are unique prints except "Eclipse - a work in five parts" - 1992, printed in an edition of 18.
All are printed by the artist.
