Décollage is the technique of removing, cutting, or tearing away sections of an original image. The French word means to take off, become unstuck or become unglued. Artists who use this technique may use art to symbolically replace values or tear thinking from media influence.
Photogravure is a process for printing photographs onto paper by etching the photograph on a copper plate. The plate was inked and pressed to the paper. The process created fine art photographs which have a distinctive beautiful appearance. Photogravure was replaced by the daguerreotype process.
Oil on board is the technique of using either wood boards which have been sanded and painted with primer, or high density cardboard covered with canvas. Either offers the advantage of using less space for storage than traditional stretched canvas on frames.
