The Summer Auction - Lot 48, Nicola Troll, Fisherman

Signed, titled, numbered and dated 'Fisherman 5/10 Nicola Troll 2018’
Etching and aquatint on paper
19.8 x 18.5 cm
Created in 2018
This work is number 5 from an edition of 10.

This etching is inspired by the fisherman in Dungeness on the Kent coastline.

Silhouetted by the low evening light, a fisherman stands on sand bank in the low tide; his line patiently waiting for the last catch of the day. 

Etching and aquatint are intaglio printmaking techniques. The image is incised into a surface and the incised lines and sunken areas hold the ink onto which the paper is then pressed. But unlike etching, aquatint is used to create tonal effects and shades rather than lines.

To give a sense of movement and spontaneity in her work, Nicola does not plan her aquatints, rather she works directly on to the plate. 

Accolades

Nicola Troll works in her studio in South London. Her printmaking is inspired by her travels and everyday scenes. Nicola has two works in The Summer Auction, the other can be seen here
