To sometimes let go and just go with the flow, can be so relaxing, all the little worries and duties that we all carry, just let them wash away with the tide!
a large 4 color linocut reduction, reduction means that as I print the colors and sculpt/carve the plate, I cut away the lino as I go along, so I have to have it all planned out and be focused on what I am doing. A reduction print can be a bit of a head game but I love the technique where the print grows in front of you, leaving a lino plate I can't print more from, so there are only 4 prints in this color combination.
Reduction lino is quite a difficult process as you have to register, that is, line up the plate and paper every single time you print, it is great fun to see how the print grows as you go along.
All my linocuts are handprinted by me, the artist, and I sign, title and number each print.
SIZE: The linocut itself measures 16" x 23", (40cm x 59cm )
and the beautiful piece of crisp white paper measures 20" x 28", (50cm x 70cm)
this linocut will easily take being framed quite large and strong, it does fit a standard frame.
SHIPPING: from my studio in Denmark I'll mail "With the tide" to you protected by tissuepaper and a plastic sleeve so it arrives safely, see my reviews. My prints come with a flier (see thumbnail) explaining what a linocut is, and who I am as an artist.
If you have any questions just get in touch..... that's what I am here for!
See you soon,
