People often ask me what the patterns signify in my work - is it roots or geology below the ground or agricultural land marks? All on these and none! When I'm working, my focus is just on colour and pattern and creating a beautiful surface that relates to patterns in nature. But by tapering the strips and drawing the tress, I can give a sense of perspective so in that sense, it's more self-consciously a field with ploughed lines.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colours by printing several times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges.
