Linocut sky with birds flying through it

Modern linocut in a decorative style:

A decorative modern linocut full of eddies and flows.

Inspired by migrating birds. An art print combining bold shapes with subtle graduated colour and texture. Seemingly simple, it passed through the printing press three times. Twice with graduated ink applied to the lino. The second time, the ink was mixed with some transparent medium and these marks retain a slight gloss as a result, adding a subtle sophistication to the artwork. The print has a comtemporary feel to it while being unashamedly decorative.

Exhibited in the Ferens Open 2009 art exhibition at Hull public art gallery, Yorkshire, UK.
