Statement
创作声明

Since first engraving around 1979, I have enjoyed breaking down solid black to the finest greys through the wide tonal gamut possible with relief tools. My fascination for building tonality and colour with line remains undimmed and I configured engraving blocks of homopolymer in 1985 to maximise the efficacy of late 19th century trade-engravers’ tint tools. Their name indicates that the commercial illustrators who used them also exploited  the tonal range of cut linear tone, often interpreting a tint made by wash illustrations drawn directly onto the block.

自1979年开始雕刻以来,我一直喜欢用凸版雕刻的工具将纯黑色分解成最细微的多层次灰色,我对利用线条所表达的色调和色彩的迷恋仍未消退。我在1985年配置了树胶版的雕版,以最大限度地发挥19世纪末行业雕刻师的着色工具的功效。商业插画家们使用这种工具,并利用雕刻后的线性色调,反应出直接在雕版上绘制的水洗插图所产生的色调效果。

In 1981 I started to engrave three blocks for overprinting, using the same technique for a single colour. The overprinted blocks literally mix secondary and tertiary colours in parts, but also print a visual colour-mix of tiny impressionist dots. It particularly suits bright, hard-edged Australian light and I am showing some Australian prints together with engravings from my Art on the Underground poster for London Transport, plus objects that I collect on my travels. I like engraving small things that can actually sit on my workbench for consultation, that stay still in the studio – and do not wilt.


1981年,我开始用同样的技术制作三块可以套印的雕版。套印显示出第二和第三色的部分,也印出了印象派的小点的视觉色彩混合的效果。它特别适合明亮、硬朗的澳大利亚光线,我将展示一些以澳大利亚为主题的版画,以及我为伦敦交通局制作的 “地铁上的艺术“(Art on the Underground )海报中的木口木刻作品。还有我在旅行中收集的物品。我喜欢雕刻小物件,它们可以放在我的工作台上供我参考,可以在工作室里静止不动——而且不会枯萎。
