In case you are not aware BIMPE is a n international printmaking showcase held every 2 years in Canada, for small postcard sized artworks created using various printmaking techniques such as etching, woodcut silkscreen etc etc. The actual exhibition of the selected art works is due to open on the 24th September 2016.
"I am quite pleased with the final sets of prints packaged up to go in the post to Canada tomorrow. I packaged them up late last night and they weighed 540 grams approx. This unfortunately was just over the 500 gram mark which made them a lot more expensive. So after having extensively wrapped and taped them up _ I had to take a scalpel and "un-package" them ....ugh !!! Never mind I managed to find some foam board pieces and then tightly wrapped them and put some Amazon brown paper ( which they use as space beads when they send you stuff in boxes) . I managed to get it down to 340 grams in the end - this made the postage costs less . Not exactly cheap but more manageable"
Here are the pieces I submitted:
|"These Small Things" 10 x 15 cm etching on archival inkjet on Hahnemuhle paper|
|"Inside a Magpie" I didn't manage to resolve this piece to my satisfaction in the end so I sent a replacement which is the 4th image down in this post. It's 10 x 15 cm as well. Like the piece above its etching on archival inkjet -with chine colle.|
|"Stitched Bear" (replacement print for Inside a Magpie)||a test collagraph proof worked into an archival inkjet print 10 x 15 cm|
