This linocut print is in luxurious copper gold, a version of my terracotta red linocut.
This is second in my series ‘Fragrant Memories’ capturing memories of places travelled through flowers, colours and symbology. This is based on a hand-drawn original design which was then carved into a lino block, and subsequently hand printed.
This print evokes the smells, sights and sounds of a Tuscan landscape. When I think of Tuscany, I think of vast fields of glorious sunflowers, tiles and roman pottery.
This print is in copper gold which gives it a deep shimmer, and I have tapped into my memories of visits to several museums with Italian and Roman pottery. Common themes include vine leaves and olive branches that I have used here in my design too. The tilework is also very evocative of local architecture.
This print will be perfect for anyone with love of Italian culture and landscape, and the copper gold makes it an attractive gift.
This is a limited edition of 50 prints, each of which was printed individually by hand using oil-based inks on smooth white 145 gsm Zerkall paper giving it a unique finish and dreamy quality. This paper does not yellow with age. Due to the handmade nature of the printing process, minor variations can occur between the various prints in an edition, making each of them unique and original.
The print is sent unframed with a secure backing mount and wrapped in delicate tissue paper with a protective cello sleeve.
