The Doors of Perception

and in between are the doors of perception". Aldous Huxley
Budapest series - Reduction Lino Cut
This Budapest Series is part of a larger project. The project is to create a 'Learn Printmaking' book that will have an interactive digital element to be released in 2021. Before lockdown I was lucky enough to travel to Budapest in Hungary and explore the city making watercolour studies and drawings in my travel sketchbook. These have been expanded and worked on back in my studio in the UK as part of my Masters studies. If you are wondering, what is linocut reduction printmaking? then head over the the video blog page and watch the process time lapse video. A selection of Original and Giclee Prints are available, email me if you would like one or check out the print store above.
Highlands Series - Reduction Lino Cut
The Highlands Series has been created in response to a free camping expedition around the Highlands of Scotland. During my time exploring the incredibly awe inspiring landscapes and breath taking nature of the land, I captured snippets with free hand sketching and my trusty camera. The history is engrained in the ancient environment of vast loch's, woodlands, animals and mountians. Linocut reduction prints have been developed back in the print studio. A selection of Original and Giclee Prints are available, email me if you would like one or check out the print store above.
Space and Colour Series - Reduction Lino Cut
The Space and Colour Series is a linocut reduction inspired by a 6am hot air balloon flight at Bristol Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in the UK. The largest festival of its kind in Europe. Surrounded by other massive balloons crossing the landscape during sunrise was an experience that triggerd an explosion of printmaking back in the studio. Using the qualities of the medium, the energetic motions of carving and layering really lent itself to the special depth and dynamic lighting that stuck in my mind from the morning.
