RED SEED PRINTS 2015

This year is a continuation of  2 ongoing projects. One an  exploration of feminine myths, stories and poems that reflect the sacred in ancient times but also still have  a strong resonance within our contemporary lives in a sacred, secular or psychological way. Secondly an exploration of the ancient art of Alchemy with Jungian reflections. These 2 projects converge in many ways.

Printing technique used : Multiplate / drypoint and watercolour
