Caught anything? Linocut printed in five colours on 350gsm Madrid White Litho in an edition of ten. Image area approximately 150mm x 150mm. £50.00
Another of the series of linocuts ‘On the skyline’ but on this occasion it’s a bit more like being ‘On the waterline’. I often see these strange, lumbering, prehistoric looking birds when I’m out pike fishing on the fen and I really do like to see them standing motionless and quietly fishing, always on the hunt for their next meal. Strangely cutting this block and the detail in it has clarified a project about fish that has been bouncing around in my head for months if not several years. It’s quite peculiar how sometimes working on one project becomes the catalyst that clarifies the way that you can treat and work with another series of prints. So, there’s more to come on that new subject once I get started cutting the first of a dozen or more blocks. Meanwhile back to the Heron in the winter fog, or, as the print is called ‘Caught anything?’. There isn’t a lot of skyline visible but it’s in there somewhere, there isn’t even a visible waterline.
