New Solarplate Print Announced

by on February 6, 2013

A new variable edition of 19 solarplate prints has recently been produced at the workshop of Dan Welden of Hampton Editions. Here are five examples from the edition titled: Toxic Garden (Sweet Pea)

“Roy Nicholson’s Toxic Garden, an edition of 19 solarplate monoprints… create an exquisite tableau that belies the toxic nature of the sweet pea plant in a variety of tones and shades. The masterful experiment in color juxtapositions causes the sweet pea to advance and retreat in a soft pattern akin to the 19th century designs of William Morris suggesting the rose and vine trellises in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.”
