Colin Clarke is an inspiring visual artist with a long background in drawing, painting, sculpting, printmaking, and large format film photography. He has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise a sum of $2950 for his all new art project, which offers limited edition intaglio prints of an engravedcopper plate. Moreover, these exclusive limited edition pieces made from an original engraved plate are printed by hand on especially imported 100% recycled cotton artisan paper and then numbered, signed and stamped. The plate will then be cancelled if the campaign is funded, and no more prints can ever be made.
“I need your help in keeping traditional printmaking using engraved plates alive, and this campaign offers these original works of art at a fraction of gallery retail pricing,” said the artist Colin Clarke, while introducing his project to the Kickstarter community. The artist does everything in the traditional way, first drawing the gesture from a life model, then engraving to copper plate and printing intaglio on imported handmade 100% recycled paper, and he does not take any help from computers or technology to complete his work. Furthermore, the artist has explained all steps of this engraving and printing process on the Kickstarter campaign page.
The Kickstarter Campaign is located on the web at:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/engravedprint/a-limited-edition-intaglio-print-engraving-of-a-fi and backers from around the world can become a part of this project by making generous pledges and donations. The project offers a wide range of rewards for the backing community and each reward includes an artwork that is handmade by Colin Clarke himself. Furthermore, the project is already creating a major buzz worldwide and more details are available on the Kickstarter campaign page of the project.
