Waxing lyrical.

As part of my recent COAST exhibition of lino prints and etchings I was interested not only in creating images of the coast as it is today but also images that were based on memories of my surfing days. I wanted to come up with a way of creating a sort of direct link with surfing  and my wife suggested I use a block of surfboard wax as a relief printing block. Some of my best ideas come from my wife!! This little film  records the printing of one of the two wax relief blocks I printed editions from. They and the other prints can be seen on my online gallery at http://www.martinart.com.au/coast-exhibition
