Bill Moseley making sculptures for photogravure

Here is the remarkable process of Bill's photogravure. 
He starts the imagery with creating a sculpture, shown here he is preparing the figure of a girl for the image 'pool'.
Then he takes it into the landscape and places it in the desired spot and photographs it.
The next stage is to bring the image through the photogravure process which we teach at Hill End Press.
Bill very much enjoys processes and believes in and understanding the craft of his endeavours.

Bill's work Myths, written in the margin will be exhibited at Bathurst Regional Gallery 24th June 2011 5.00pm for a floor talk and 6.00pm opening.
