The storm surge which slammed into England's East Anglian coast on the night of 5/6 December 2013 was even higher than the devastating surge of 1953, which took so many lives. The heavy seas smashed holes in the sea wall at Cromer and the Box Office and theatre on the pier were also damaged. I visited Cromer in August 2014 and found work gangs all around, struggling to repair the damages.
This print is pulled from an engraving cut from a sheet of rubber, a variation of letterpress. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the rubber sheet is then rolled up with ink and pressed to paper, producing the print. The technique does not accommodate reprinting, so the edition is forever fixed at 5 copies.
