Character of Water
Stephen | Morrison have now made three prints combining photo-gravure and screenprinting techniques to reproduce images from offshore sailing , caught in time, with a prose poem version of a timeless story linked to place. The text of the stories is screenprinted by the image, now translated into photo-gravyre, The story is thus in the colour of he sea at the time of observing its setting. The production was assisted by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Cape Farewell and exhibited at an Talla Solais. Two prints were also selected for the Impact 8 Print Festival Scotland at DCA.
