As a printmaker Tricia is always thinking of the outcome of the materials used. She is fascinated by the alchemic changes, often with a degree of independence from the artist’s intention.
The use of acids, metal, wood, inks, oils and water all give a unique twist on the outcome of these prints. Ink has a special quality, different from oil paint, gouache or watercolour. It has clarity and layers that can be explored – just like alchemy.
