Artist's description:

In a clearing in Thetford forest, new trees struggle. Within their block these trees will ultimately overwhelm all other plant life. They will grow and be felled over the equivalent span of a human generation. The establishment of this particular forest was an aftermath of World War One, when demand for timber had outstripped supply. The planting of a dark forest over once sunny and open heathland is a fitting memorial to those men and their families and their faith, trampled down in the Great War. As horrific memory fades, parts of the forest are being opened out and in spaces within, music is occasionally heard.

This print is pulled from a relief plate cut from rubber, a variation of letterpress, akin to linoprinting. The completed edition made 6 copies. The print would fit straight into a standard 10x14 inch frame or I can trim the print as you require. Please see the adjacent photograph as to how the image is positioned on the paper. The print is on light Japanese paper and a backing sheet of the same size is included.

Materials used:

oil-based black printing ink on Japanese Washi paper

young pines (2017)
