This is a triptych of reduction linocuts showing variegation patterns from leaves off a garden shrub.

Printed in yellow, light-green and dark-green inks (Caligo) on high quality heavy-weight textured paper (Somerset, 250g). It has an off-white window mount and is backed with quality backing board and ready to frame.

The print is from a small numbered edition (14) and is signed and dated.

Approximate dimensions (WxH) in mm.:

Paper: 380x190
Image: 80x80 x 3
Mount external : 350x185
Mount window: 280x105

I can supply framed or un-mounted too - please contact me directly.

I have greetings cards with the same image available too.


I'm a biologist by training and like plants and made a set of macro photographs of leaf patterns, especially the variegation. Some of those images were selected and became the basis for a set of three linocuts.

They're reduction linocuts which means that after printing each colour the plate is cleaned, re-cut and inked with the next colour. It's then over-printed onto the previous print trying to maintain exact registration.

For this print the process was repeated twice. Yellow first, then light green, then dark green. Once the second cut is made no further prints can be taken as the plate for the first colour is now modified.
