Liverpool artwork of the day – Monday June 11 2007. ‘Coil’ Collagraph by Ruth Thomas at Editions until Jul6 2007

Ruth Thomas is a contemporary artist specialising in printmaking, whose work reflects a fascination with natural forms.

Most of Ruth’s prints are collagraphs, a print from a collage. They are original, hand-made prints, not reproduction prints.

A variety of materials can be used to make the printing plate including papers, card, fabrics, thread, tin foil, sand, grass, seeds and so on. The materials are glued onto a support such as mountboard. The plates are then sealed with white emulsion paint and acrylic varnish.

Based near Mold in North Wales, she often exhibits in Liverpool.
