Handmade paper editions by Ruth Lingen
Handmade paper editions Dimensions : 610x470mm-unframed
To create these handmade paper editions, we worked carefully from the original 'pulp paintings' to translate each stroke of colour and shape into a plastic stencil.
Each edition needed 4 stencils, which had between 1 and 4 colours on each stencil. Each stencil is carefully registered onto a freshly pulled sheet of cotton handmade paper and filled with highly pigmented linen pulp, in a watery mixture that is applied through the stencil holes using squeeze bottles. After all the colour has been applied, the sheet gets pressed to extract the water and dried. The final step is to add the pencil and pastel elements for the finishing touch. Ruth Lingen

What an honour it was when Ruth offered to make handmade prints of these special works Paul created in New York in 2005. An affirmation of the quality of the work Paul produced.
