Collaboration with Artist for Kids and Charlene Vickers
New Leaf Editions is glad to have collaborated this year with Artists for kids and their invited artist Charlene Vickers to create a unique Limited-Edition Print. It is a pleasure to be involved and to support Artists for kids projects over the years to make art education accessible to the youth.
Fish in Astral Projection under Moons is combining printmaking and Charlene Vickers approach with textiles in her artwork. This edition is made of six plates, seven colours intaglio print, including chine-collé and hand colouring. This print was produced using a technique called soft ground lift, where the texture of fabrics (felt, foam and cloth) selected by Vickers and her hand sewing was transferred into the soft ground and then etched into the plate. The fish silhouette is a copper plate cut into the shape of the fish and aquatinted to achieve the rich black colour and texture. The final piece to this work is the addition of a button that is hand sewn to the printing paper.
After the production of the edition at New leaf Editions the print Fish in Astral Projection under Moons was launched in September 2022 for the PATH’S exhibition opening at the Gordon Smith Gallery.
