Artist's description:

This print was inspired by a stone carving I came upon passing Trinity House at Tower Hill, London. The history of Trinity House goes back to 1514, their concern is the safety of shipping and the well-being of seafarers. The Headquarters at Tower Hill was built in 1796 but was largely destroyed in the Blitz of 1940. After the war it was faithfully rebuilt and re-opened by the Queen in 1953. The name of Trinity House indicates a spiritually guided mission and I have taken a fragment of a Psalm as a title for the piece. The line complete reads, 'Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.'


This print is pulled from a relief plate cut from rubber, a variation of letterpress, akin to lino printing. The completed edition made 7 copies. The paper and ink are of high quality and should present no keeping difficulty. The print would fit straight into a 10x12 inch frame if required or trimming the print to your requirement is included. Please see the adjacent photograph as to how the image is positioned on the paper.

Materials used:

oil-based printing ink, Lambeth Cartridge paper 130gsm
