Denny worked with dyed paper, making these prints and a series of drawings together entitled ‘Signatures’. For the prints, the blocks of colour that lie behind the configurations were printed first, then further colour was applied with acrylic paint through a stencil, then the paper was dyed and, finally, the line of the configuration was printed.
