Original etching with fragments of gold leaf
By Rosie McLay, (UK) 2017
Size and Finish
Available in frames which have been made and fitted by the artist in antiqued black and gold Obeche wooden frames. Original etchings are float mounted so the artwork appears to be hovering between the glass and the backing mount, for a sensitive framing style as well as a great conservation technique.
Due to the delicate nature of this method of printmaking and the artists’ style, each print has individual qualities; different ink tones, mark making and textures will differ from piece to piece, but each one has been selected by the artist to be included in the edition. Please also note that the gold leaf, being a composition of metals, should not be hung or stored in a damp or incredibly hot or cool space.
