This monoprint is part of a small series on the theme of flora and fauna. This sub series is printed onto coloured papers, this one a black, slightly pearlescent effect heavyweight card called Black Russian (290gsm) from Fabriano which is lightfast and has high colour stability in addition to being acid free. The card is quite environmentally friendly, produced without wood and using hydro-power. The black card has enabled me to print with gold ink which shows up well against the dark surface.
I have created 30 linocut printing blocks of individual plants and animals and used them to try and replicate the layered nature of the hedgerow.
The images are each made from a unique combination of these linocut blocks inked up and printed.
Each is quite different from the others, the choice of blocks used, the positioning and the colours of the ink make each monoprint a unique creation.
I hope that each conveys my love for nature.
Printed onto Fabriano 290gsm pearlescent black Russian cardstock (lightfast pigment and acid free), Cranfield gold ink (oil based)
Paper sized : 50 cm x 70 cm (19.6 inches x 27.5 inches)
My linocuts are handmade from start to finish, hand carved, rolled and handprinted, as in the nature of linoprints and the handmade process they may have small variations. This I feel is part of the charm of printmaking and makes each print into both a unique artwork.
