Textured Print on aluminium panel
The Curley Oak
36”x24” Textured Print on aluminium panel – Limited Edition of 10
The Curley Oak (local spelling!) can be found in one of the Woodland Trust’s woods; Wentwood in Monmouthshire, South Wales. Wentwood is a former Royal hunting forest once belonging to Chepstow Castle, and much of the wood is now a conifer plantation, although here and there you will find ancient trees such as the Curley Oak. It’s girth is over 6m, and it’s still alive with a hollowing trunk and plenty of lichens and mosses living on it.
All prints are made by me in my studio using the finest quality art papers and long-lasting pigment inks. For my “textured” prints I use an archival heavyweight textured watercolour paper which emphasises the textures present in the image. “Textured” prints are treated with an invisible matt varnish. Prints on an aluminium panel are made by mounting a print onto an aluminium composite sheet. Wooden battens are fixed to the back of the panel so that the artwork appears to “float” about 1” away from the wall.
