Very limited edition of 6 prints on archival Canson paper
Hand-drawn, hand-carved, hand-pulled
Part of my 'bedroom' series which celebrates memories spent in the different bedrooms that I have lived in, this linocut is a remembrance of the special space where I spent a very crucial year of my life in. It is from when I was a 19-year-old student in university in London, when circumstances made me spend a lot of hours in this bedroom, giving me time for quiet reading and reflection, and I suddenly 'grew up' during that one year, learning more about happiness and to love my life as an individual.
Hand-drawn, hand-carved, and hand-pulled, this work has been created with a single block of linoleum, using the reduction process (one colour after the other printed from the same block with a stage of further carving in between). The sky gradation has been done using the stencil technique, and I have also experimented with a layer of sheer ink for the stream of light!
