Description

"Delicate World" is created using the linocut printing method. Each print is created by hand so there may be tiny variations which add to the individual beauty of this original artwork. "Delicate World" is printed onto Bunkoshi 70gsm printmaking paper from the Awagami factory in Japan.

Print Size 30cm x 30cm
Paper Size 35cm x 35cm (approx)
Ink Type Caligo Safewash Oil Based Relief Ink

This print is sold unframed and unmounted. Photos of framed prints are for illustrative purposes only. Your print will be packaged securely and well protected inside a cardboard tube and will be sent by Royal Mail Tracked and Signed free of charge.

The paper is very strong but can be creased fairly easily, simple uncurling instructions are provided but if you are not confident to handle the print for mounting and framing then using a professional framer is recommended.

"Delicate World" is a limited edition of 50 prints after which the block will deliberately marked so that no further prints can be produced.

Inspiration

The idea of the globe as a dandelion seedhead began after my "Dandelion Clocks" print was completed. The delicacy of the dandelion clock and the ease with which it is destroyed felt quite poignant in the context of our climate emergency. As the COVID 19 pandemic has thundered through all of our lives, the print seems to capture even more the fragility of humans and the world which we inhabit.

"Delicate World" was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Linocut is a relief printmaking method where an image is transferred or drawn directly in reverse onto the lino block. The image is then carved into the surface of the lino using mainly U and V shaped gouges. Ink is then applied to the block, paper laid onto the surface and hand burnished or pressed to lift the print. "Delicate World" requires 3 layers of ink to achieve the depth of black I wanted.
