I'm fascinated by the endlessly malleable curves and lines of the human body. I'm particularly attracted to portraying the nude in block print for the way that the curvature of the figure contrasts with the rigidity of the material. Recently I've also become interested in using the technique of layering coloured blocks to print patterns over my nudes. Here a transparent water motif reveals the body residing both below and above the surface.
As all prints are hand pressed, each will have some minor differences, which I believe adds to the character of the print. I cannot guarantee that you will receive the edition featured in the photo.
