On an old sea chart of the Norwegian coast with it's archipelago, I have printed a one color linocut with a quote from Susan Sontag :
"I have not been everywhere, but it is on my list" , I love it!
As a printmaker, paper is an obsession and vintage maps have always fascinated me. I made a bit of a find at a local fleamarket and had a stack of vintage sea charts to do something fun with, but of course, every print is a one off, as there are no repeat maps! (Almost all gone now!) This is the print you receive! There are areas of slight foxing and some marks on the chart, as it has been used, but it is in a handsome condition.
A hand printed linocut, printed by me, the artist, I print the linocut plate in a warm velvety black, on an old sea chart.
This of course means that the print will be different every time, so the edition is only there to give you an idea of how many prints I will make using this lino plate.
If you are interested in printmaking, You can see me printmake in a gang of films, go to the "me at work" section in this shop
"I have not been everywhere" is printed on a beautiful piece of old sea chart, I only print on the ones I think are fun, that is, have quite a bit of little islands etc.
the image measures 14" x 13.5" (35 cm x 34 cm)
and the piece of chart measures approx. 18" x 20". (45 cm x 50 cm)
I have signed and numbered the print.
It'll come to you protected by tissuepaper and a plastic sleeve, sent in a mailing tube so it arrives safely.
If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!
