Artist's description:

A human hand has a hand, pardon the pun, in everything we do to create something, be it images, film, even words, we use our hands to articulate and express ourselves.

A hand pulled, hand inked linocut, I carve the lino, ink it up and put it through my etching press. For each print the lino have to be inked up again. Printing a black and white linocut looks deceptively easy, but it is not that easy to get a solid beautiful black, when indeed it is a human hand that holds the roller laden with ink.
"Create" is printed in a gorgeous charcoal black on a piece of beautiful handmade printmaking paper, with oilbased printmaking inks.
The actual piece of paper measures 45 cm x 48 cm (18" x 19")
and the lino image measures 38 cm x 38 cm (15" x 15" )
This linocut print, can be framed really large, it has a strong presence and would speak to a whole room. Create fits in a standard 50 x 50 cm frame with a custom cut mat, mats can be ordered from your framer, or found in good art supply shops. Always frame a printmaking print with a mat, so it does not touch the glass. It is the best to use acid free materials, and in the case of a DIY framing, to close the back with framing tape or similar to prevet dust and insects to get to you print.

I'll mail it to you, protected by tissuepaper, with a nice flier explaining what a linocut is.
If you would like it gift wrapped just let me know.
