Martyn Grimmer's prints are a combination of subtle tones, velvet blacks and luminous light. Martyn continues to develop his unique command of the photopolymer gravure method of printmaking producing works of unparallelled quality.
Other limited edition prints are available including works from the 'Cup' and 'Latitude/Longitude' series.
The photo-polymer gravure process uses light sensitive plates, using drawings and photographic imagery. The intaglio plate is printed as with etching, but it is an acid free process. This method is often described as 'solar plate' as it uses U.V. light to fix the image to the plate.
Martyn runs courses in Polymer Photogravure here at Rabley. See the COURSES page for more information.
