Artist's description:

imaginary lines

Imaginary lines only exist by the thought and hand of Man. Such arbitrary marks may or may not be acceptable to others, such as geographical borders drawn on a map. Their existence would seem tenuous yet they impact our daily life. This picture shows the approach flight paths for Heathrow and the holding stacks of Bovington, Lambourne, Ockham and Biggin. The broken line in the centre indicates the runways between.

This print is pulled from an image cut out of a sheet of rubber, and is a variation of letterpress printing. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the remaining rubber is rolled up with ink and pressed to paper. The edition in this case was closed at six copies. The print comprises oil-based ink on acid free paper and should present no keeping difficulties. The image measures 5x6¼ inches on a 10 x 12 inch sheet, presented in portrait format and will fit straight into a standard 10 x 12 inch frame.

Materials used:

black oil-based printing ink, Lambeth cartridge 130gsm

imaginary lines (2017)
