Artwork description:

'Into the Mine' is an early linocut I made in which the silhouette of a miner is caught dramatically against the light that spills into the dark underground setting. On the right hand-side is a coal carriage, with simple line work suggesting a track and the surrounding interior. The effect of light in the darkness imbues the work with a sense of mystery. As the son of a coal-miner myself, I wanted to pay homage to the industrial heritage of the North-East of England and the tough, dangerous work of the miners.

This is a limited edition linocut, printed on beautiful 285gsm Fabriano Rosapina Avorio paper.

Your print will come wrapped in protective tissue paper to reach you in the best condition.

If you have any questions relating to the work before purchase please don't hesitate to ask me.
