These linocuts are hand-thrown, meaning each print has its own original qualities even within the same edition-run. Sumi ink is used for the black outlines, as its gloss and texture add to the composition of the landscape.
‘These are original artwork using hand screen printing and my lino cut plates. I create multilayer colours blocks with screen printing allowing the edges to misalign to produce lively lines which are further enhanced by the black lino cut print on top.
The black is a Japanese sumi ink which is glossy and textural and is in high contrast to the flat matt screen colour below. I like to leave some white in the image to allow the colours and lines to have space so that the image does not become too impacted and confined.’
