Product Description

本版畫使用兩個版、四個顏色、印兩次。第一個版是線版,分為上半部的帶紅的黑色,和下半部帶藍色的黑色。第二個版是色版,有著上半部的黃色,和下半部的藍色,亦即「劉國松藍」。製版過程艱辛漫長,整整花了三個月時間。

主版線版是以雕刻刀雕刻而成,原作是水墨韻染的部分,則是以獨特於銅版畫的一個特殊技術,稱為「飛塵」。所謂的「塵」是松香粉,松香是松樹的分泌物,埋入地下經年累月就成為琥珀。松香粉具有防強酸腐蝕的特性。

將雕刻刀刻完線條之後的銅板,放入「飛塵箱」中,細微的松香粉末就會由底部吹出,均勻散落在銅板上,再取出後,將需要被強酸腐蝕部分的松香粉末擦去,再用酒精燈在銅板下方加溫,讓未被擦去部份的松香粉末融化並固著,接下來放入強酸腐蝕槽,被刀刻的線條會放腐蝕得非常清晰,而被松香粉末覆蓋的部份,僅會輕微被腐蝕,進而在未來的印製時,形成矇矓的效果。

本作的氣勢來自上下構圖,山在雲霧中突然冒出來,必需使用「飛塵技術」,這是一般銅版畫僅使用刻刀所無法達到的。

The print is composed of two plates, four colors, in two runs. The first plate is the main plate responsible for the upper magenta-tinted black and the lower cyan-tinted black. The second is the color plate, setting the top mountains in a yellow frame and filling “Liu Kuo-sung Blue” to the bottom calligraphic brushstrokes. The two plates alone required three months to create.

While the solid lines and contours were created by the etching needle, the varying shades of diluted ink were created by aquatint, a variant of etching. In aquatint, powdered resin, derived from the sap of pine trees, is applied on the copper plate to control and diminish the effect of acid on the plate. During the application, the plate is placed into an aquatint box, in which powdered resin is blown inside the box and lands evenly on the plate. Areas that do not require the effect of aquatint will have the resin wiped off.  The plate is then heated with an alcohol lamp from underneath to melt the resin onto the plate. During biting process, in which the acid bites onto the plate, areas applied with resin are more resistant to acid, and therefore less ink-absorbent during printing, ultimately creating a blurry image, unlike that of conventional etching prints.

The image’s atmosphere comes from the split composition, in which the mountains fade into mist toward the bottom, and are met with abstract calligraphic brushstrokes. The natural edition of contours fading into mist requires the technique of aquatint, and cannot be represented with the etching needle alone.
