This is one of the few photos I have taken that I just return to again and again, maybe it is that Curiosity is such a great thing!
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 10 prints, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This is quite a complicated process, great fun, as you don't really know how the print is going to turn out until the end, it is a technique I enjoy very much, as it feels quite like you are sculpting with your linocut knife and painting with your inked roller. Experience has taught me incredibly much about this way of printing, managing the ink, using pressure, etc etc, given the choice this is my favorite way of printmaking!
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of beautiful non toxic blockprinting inks in happy bright colors to add a touch of happiness to any space you hang your linocut in. I take pride in using the best papers, this is a velvety bright white heavy Zerkall paper, just gorgeous!
SIZE: "Bumblebee " is printed on a bright white piece of velvety printmaking paper,
the image measures 9" x 14" (22 cm x 35 cm)
and paper is 12" x 18". (30 cm x 45 cm)
EDITION: I have signed, titled and numbered the edition of 10 prints
Please be aware that I can't guarantee you will receive the number in the photo.
SHIPPING: I'll mail it to you from my studio in Denmark, protected by tissuepaper and a plastic sleeve, and I pack with many years experience in shipping my work, so it arrives safely. It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is. I am very happy to giftwrap if you want?
If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!
