Drawings & Works on Paper

  • About the work

A collage of ivory and black fine paper is pressed into a white ground over which the artist has printed a structure of etched and drypoint lines in silver ink. Simonin moves fluidly between modes of creation merging collage and print in a unique, non-figurative image. Each print in this series is unique in that each ground is made in a different collage and the burr made from the drypoint technique -- the metal that lines the edge of each incised groove in the plate -- erodes and softens with each pull. Simonin typically creates only short editions of unique prints.
