Viscosity on paper

Using a magnificent colour palette, Jagmohan Chopra in Composition 6A creates an imposing print that is built up from the artist’s use of negative picture-space to give him fascinating results. Execution in the viscosity process enables the creation of a complex network of lines, shapes and an opportunity to play with colours. Chopra, one of the finest printmakers from India, worked through a complex rhythm in a technique that allowed the artist to place colours in individual layers, and eventually emerge in a cohesive manner.
