Thoughts on Printmaking – Jane Tonks

“Prints appeal to me as they are usually small in size and have the beautiful qualities of a limited, handmade, collectable piece of artwork. I think it is the manual process of Printmaking that I find so appealing. Each plate requires a labour love, creativity and patience. Etching, carving, gluing, inking up, wiping down and rolling through the press is a process which engrosses the senses and takes the printmaker into a deep meditative state. I love it! Oh course, it can also be quite frustrating when the prints don’t work out, but the reward of a success print at the end of your efforts is very satisfying! “ Jane Tonks  

Jane Tonks – Artist Statement:

Many of the prints in presented in this collection are an artistic expression of my recent journey with breast cancer.  I have documented the emotional and physical journey of cancer & treatment with the exploration of mortality, resilience, self-esteem and recovery.   A series of etchings, collagraphs and woodblock prints document a time-line through diagnosis, operations, chemotherapy, hair loss, battered self-esteem, physical weakness, questioning, depression & the full circle to hope and recovery.   Some of the prints are stark and confronting in their subject depiction. Others are more subtle. I have drawn upon the imagery of paper-chain ladies as an icon for the many women who are going through or have gone through breast cancer. This imagery also represents the many wonderful women I have met along the way and the strength and resilience gained through caring personal networks.   I hope these artworks resonate with a powerful message about resilience, survival and hope.
