Original Prints

Original prints exist in multiple but each one is an original work of art, printed by hand from metal plates or wooden blocks. Jo Ganter produces etchings and relief prints often using multiple plates or blocks to build layers of colour. Her photo-etchings are also printed by hand from metal plates that have been coated with light-sensitive photo-emulsion that is exposed to film before being etched using aquatint.  She produces small limited editions of each image. 

Barium chromate is named for its colour: yellow. It is a two plate intaglio print that combines photo-etching and aquatint. Printed on Somerset Velvet, 300gm paper, 112 X 77.5cm, the image is 96 X 54cm. It was exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition in 2016.
