Breakthrough – Reclaiming the Common

This series of screenprints is based on a reproduction of an eighteenth century drawing which shows the vicar of Richmond leading his parishioners to break through the wall into Richmond Park.  This was previously common land, but had been enclosed as a park for hunting deer by the aristocracy.  The local people were now reclaiming the common.

These prints are the result of a series of reproductions, starting from the original line drawing, then photography, half-tone screening, black and white off-set litho printing, digital scanning, digital manipulation, enlargement,  and finally screen-printing in colours, including gold ink and mud.
