Tricia Torrington

I frequently work in series, relating work either to aspects of the human or to esoteric issues such as astronomy, healing or the divine. My work will abstract known imagery or use metaphor. I also make artist books containing my own poetry. My work employs a variety of different printmaking techniques, often combining these to achieve texture, depth and colour fields. This current series – Mappa Moleculis – seeks to map molecules in the human body, from elements through to DNA and ATP (the energy molecule of the body). Using a circular format reproduces the idea of the Mappa Mundi together with an end-of-the-microscope image.
