Skating Print, Lino Cut, Linoleum Print, Home Decoration

Skating Print, Lino Cut, Linoleum Print, Home Decoration
Love this


This is a linocut that I made working from an old photo (with some modifications). It shows two gents, happily skating. The method used is a so called "suicide" or "reduction method" where the same block is carved into again and again (reduced) and is rendered useless (hence suicide) in the process. I ended up with a very small edition of 6, which I labelled with a star, indicating a varying edition.

What doesn't quite come across in the photos and scans here is that the ground is printed in a cream colour and the sky is not - but that is visible in the print itself.

The printed area is approximately 10cm x 13cm in size.
Print 2/6(star) and 3/6(star) are both sold with a mount to fit an A4 frame.
Copy 4/6(star) is sold with a mount to fit a 10"x8" (25.5cmx20.3cm) frame.

If you need a different sized mount or would like to swap them around, let me know.


What strikes me about these two is the mixture of dignity and boyish joy in skating
