Aliyah Hussain is a visual artist and contemporary ceramic jewellery designer based in Manchester.
4 colour risograph print on recycled cartridge paper. This is a handmade artwork made using various materials and methods, so traces of the process will be visible. For example, cut marks, glue, slight creases, torn edges, rubbed out pencil marks, ink splodges, risograph roller marks, ghosting, bleaching, remnants of old work etc. Aliyah likes to adopt a no-waste practice when it comes to using paper in her work and try's to find a use for as many of the materials that pass through her studio and incorporate them into new works.
The Risograph print process uses a soy-based ink, this ink doesn't ever fully dry, so some smudges are possible. If you smudge the work a regular pencil eraser should be able to correct the smudge. If you get it on your hands, it will wash out with soapy water.
All of Aliyah's prints are delivered flat in acid-free tissue paper and in a hard backed envelope.
