Sophia Saunders

By transforming utilitarian objects or familiar scenes into prints, my artwork brings them out of the mundane and gives them a colour, a shape, an individuality.  

 The process of printmaking is multifaceted; an image is constantly shifting, revealing itself. After carving out the negative space, what is left is the reverse image. By adding colour, I dictate the mood of the print, and only once it is pressed does the image come to life.

 Within each print the imperfections take on unique characteristics that add a human element to an otherwise mechanical process.
