'The Lark over the Sussex Weald from Devils Dyke' Last summer, one clear day my friend Eros and I had a picnic in this exact location, it is hard to believe that it is only twenty minutes outside Brighton. It had been in my mind for some time to depict this mesmerising view. We sat on the grass with our sandwiches when i heard it first, a lark, instinctively i found myself looking up scrutinising the sky to subsequently find it, up there, held in the air singing its defiant rather loud tune. Devils Dyke was formed during the Ice age; it is England’s deepest and widest dry valley nearly a mile long. Described by Constable as ‘the grandest view of the World. The view I portray looks down onto the Sussex Weald confined by the South and in the distance the North Downs.

‘Round Headed Rampion, Pride of Sussex in flower over the Downs’  This print is a a re-take of a previous print with the addition of a screen of cerulean blue flowers. Picture yourself lying on the grass in this spot looking at the distant landscape through the immediate growth of Rampion flowers. ‘Playteuma Orbiculare’, ‘Round Headed Rampion Flower’ or as colloquially known ‘The Pride of Sussex’. It is actuallly a cluster of small flowers that open looks like a sea anemone. A herbaceous plant from the family of the campanulaceae with large erect stems. You can find it in most of Europe but it thrives in the Downs grasslands chalky soils. In the language of flowers, the campanula means gratitude. The production drawing of this flower screen started with charcoal drawings and then kitchen lithography. Kitchen lithography means stone(Lito) printing( graphy) in the kitchen. Since all the materials for its production can be found in an everyday kitchen. It is based on the same principle as traditional lithography that water and oil push each other. French Emilie Aizer developed this technique in 2009. It replaces the harmful chemicals turpentine and nitric acid. On a piece of kitchen foil a design is drawn with oil pens, chocolate or soap, once the designed is completed Cola drink is poured on it as a corrosive element to alter the water retaining properties of the foil; cooking vegetable oil is then used to wipe and clean the foil. The result is a plate that when made moist and then inked with a roller, the ink attaches to the design. Finally a wooden press is used to transfer the inked plate into paper.

Pallant House Gallery North South Blue.– Elevation drawing of North and South Pallant Streets in Chichester showcasing Pallant House Gallery; an early 20th century modern British and European art museum housed in a Queen Anne 18th century townhouse and a 21st century contemporary extension designed by Long & Kentish in association with Colin St John Wilson. The colours for this print are a response to ‘Still life-cerulean’ by Ben Nicholson, an abstract painting in the collection of the Pallant House Gallery‘ painted in 1946 . The exercise of producing this print shows how an abstract piece converses with a figurative one, and how this in return validates the abstraction.

Brighton Palace Pier axonometric view. -Brighton Victorian leisure Palace Pier. The Palace Pier was constructed as a replacement for the Chain Pier, which collapsed in 1896 during construction.
