Carol Savage

Carol is disturbed by the violence, alienation and disconnection in modern society and drawn to the broken, aged and worn-out fragments we leave behind, or views of the world that may be partial or incomplete. For this series of prints she began with drawing small elements of the landscape, layering and manipulating them to create a new whole. These were then the focus of printmaking techniques with a green ethic. Ferric chloride is used to etch rather than the more toxic nitric acid, and biodegradable sunflower oil is used to clean up, rather than white spirit. The chine collee is litter and waste paper fragments.
