25cm x 25cm digital reproduction of Palimpsest 16
Palimpsest 1 is the first print pulled from the copper plate and it is possible to see the erasure of the image throughout the other versions.
The Palimpsest prints are intaglio prints using the techniques of aquatint and drypoint. All prints are taken from the one copper plate using resin and acid resist (aquatint) and using metal engraving tools (dry point).
palɪm(p)sɛst noun: ‘something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form’
