    About The Work

    This series began with some accidental score marks Tony Swain made on bus tickets that were laying underneath another artwork he was making—deliberate gestures captured on an unintended surface. By retrieving these marks, enlarging them and using a mechanical engraving process to transfer inky lines onto the new surface of soft paper clay, he creates a series of varying prints. Each carries its own divergent gestures and unplanned marks as a result of the process. The artist has located his signature in a different place on the back of each edition, in a response to the individual smudges of ink and marks left during handling and fabrication.
