Saturday artist – Emma Hirst

To start the weekend, we have Emma Hirst:  Gof of NatureNirvana

Siddhartha sits II

Emma uses monoprint, etching, drypoint, stencil and experimental printmaking techniques in her work.

Emma says ” In these images I have tried to express the wonder of mother nature. For years I have struggled with the question of how to produce an image which can vaguely compete with the beauty, the simplicity and the complexity of nature.  In these prints I am using nature as the mark, nature is paint, paint brush and the canvas. Through various techniques I have used nature as a direct print. A photograph would not be direct enough, a drawing would be too far removed.  Like a fossil I want my images to come entirely from the contact with nature.”
