Crop Circles

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2018

CROP CIRCLES takes the RUST BELT technique a step further. In CROP CIRCLES, a hard plate is inked fairly heavily and while it is still wet thin pieces of layered and unsealed cardboard are applied as a resist. Additional ink is applied and the plate is allowed to dry. Because some of the ink is absorbed into the cardboard, the cardboard layers separate during printing creating a collage or chin colle effect. Matted and framed to 14” x 11”.
