A Ross based artist who specialises in lino printing and paint carving has launched a new website to showcase their work.
Tara Slater was featured at the Made in Ross event Private View, showcasing a selection of her finest prints.
I combine my joy of carving with my love of animals and the natural world.
She said: “I wasn’t sure at first which direction my art would take, but rediscovering printmaking quickly answered that question. I combine my joy of carving with my love of animals and the natural world, exploring through carved lines and colour my own personal connection to the world.”
Inspired by the natural world and a love for animals, Tara carves images in both lino for printmaking and into layers of acrylic paint, creating relief carvings. Her lino printings are transferred onto lino and then carved to create a relief. The relief is then covered with printing ink and transferred to paper using pressure, either by hand or by press. Another medium Tara specialises in is print carving, this involves carving into many layers of acrylic paint, between 40 and 85, that have been layered up on a board. The layering can take between 10 and 30 days at around three layers per day with multiple colours; each carving is unique.
