Back Beach III

“The west coast evening light simplified the volcanic shapes of Paritutu and its islands and inspired the series of Back Beach prints made by my father and I in 1974.”

Blended screen print – each print is hand printed. Each edition is slightly different to the next due to the hand pulling of the ink over the screen; a technique deemed far harder, due to the gradual colour gradients, than the block colour screen printing technique.

Edition of 59 (third edition)
