A veil of distinctive pattern covers the collaborative work made with Stephen Chambers. An intricately woven motif is lifted by a wash made on Truegrain. The effect creates a billowing, hot haze - reminiscent of the summer heatwaves that have hit us this month here in Cambridge. The idea was to ‘print air’, Chambers praises the precision achieved in the ‘threaded web’ as a ‘perfect fusion of the digital and the analogue’ in the printmaking process.

The perplexing narrative of this nighttime scene includes a secretive meeting of horse riders - Chambers describing a connection to Washington crossing the Delaware.
