Saturday 12th November 2011: Preview of work by Lisa O’Brien at Left Bank, Tarland

Lisa O’Brien

Saturday 12th November 2011

Preview 6pm – 8pm

Lisa O’Brien lives and works in Wester Ross on the west coast of Scotland.

Two years ago Lisa had a residency at Left Bank and we are delighted to welcome her back.

Lisa has been developing her work at the Highland print studio in Inverness and has a particular interest in photogravure technique. This is where  a polymer plate  is coated with a light-sensitive gelatin tissue and is then  exposed to a film positive. This is made into a  high quality plate that can reproduce the detail and continuous tones of a photograph.

On show will be a collection of  atmospheric photogravure prints on BFK Rives Grey paper

and archival digital inkjet prints  on Somerset fine art paper.
