Printmaking has grown increasingly important for Sandra Porter. Working with grids and squares it is difficult to define which comes first paint or print. Visiting the Isle of Skye she found that the corrugated sheds and farm buildings in outrageous pinks and greens resonated with the lines and blocks of tone in her current work. In the next series of prints, figuration began to creep in: a roof here, a chimney pot there, a boarded up window, speaking of the harshness of the northern climate and the rural way of life in this remote area of the British Isles. Porter's black carborundum prints are reliant on the heavy pressure of the press to bring out the texture of the process. Borrowing snippets of technique from Jasper Johns she inks up the plate with white and soaks her completed print in black indian ink as it comes off the press. The image emerges as the ink dries. In 4 coloured prints using viscosity techniques she rolls hard, medium and soft rollers to isolate the different colours leading to fascinating, beautiful tones and hues which allow subtle differences within editions. Moving between unique prints and small paintings her colour has become increasingly vibrant and celebratory.
