Lino printing

I’m so in love with lino cutting and printing. It is so very therapeutic somehow.

We worked so hard…every day for 6 weeks pretty much, preparing for our stall at BAM! Brighton Art Market on the weekend of 21/22nd May. the market was part of the Open House festival on the central trail.

Print fest

This is a collage I put together from four small cuts.

It was a freehand cut, I just started it from one edge to see where it took me.

We had been watching an MC Escher video showing him printing his tessellating woodcuts and I was inspired to try something similar. Though I did not succeed in a tessellation this image bears quite a resemblance to the work of Vasarely and it really is quite effective.

I found the single print image in black and white made my eyes ‘go funny’ and I had accidentally created a kind of optical illusion.
