The Wanderer (Monarch) Butterfly, (Danaus plexippus  plexippus), is a frequent visitor to Mary Cairncross
Conservation Reserve resting lightly on this pristine environment.
This series continues my exploration of the fragile relationship between the map as a representation of
containment and the natural world.

Visiting Granny

 

 

 

This is the first of some planned mixed media works focussing on linocut which will celebrate Grannys as the keepers of our collective memory.

“Granny’s vase” is my first of the series.

This project continues to combine my cultural heritage interests with printmaking of various forms.

It is also an example of my current experimentation with adding stencil work by hand to the single linocut pull in oils. A big saving on the time it takes to prepare and use masks.

This gives a more painterly effect but moves the work into the realm of “Unique State” as far as printmaking is concerned in much the same way as hand-painting linocuts does, because the works are not completely accurate replications and therefore not editioned.

U/S is conventionally marked 1/1 these days.

part of the HORIZON festival of arts and culture

I will be conducting “Have A Go” printmaking opportunities with my portable printmakers press.Participants will be able to print their own personalised Art Card using the collagraph method.
