I always enjoy landscape scenes in which an old saying presents itself.
The managed waterways of the Eastern Counties of England are often centuries old. The apparently quiet water can in fact be moving at a dangerously high speed, and it's bridges may well have seen an enormous amount of water pass beneath.
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.
