That is what I called this Linocut……
The black and white print fades to grey at the top which is a little bit tricky to ink up in a seemless way. The colours in the grey flowers are handpainted after the print is dry. I used the colours of the light spectrum (rainbow) it just seemed fitting to use all the colours that light is.
Its pretty big too …for a linocut about 50cm square although its not really a square image.
The idea for this linocut was in my head for months before I made it. The chair is the chair in my lounge room, which in real life sits in front of a window and I think I’ve created the feeling of light without cluttering the image by having to include the window. In that space all else ceases to be.
There is a space of imagining which happens before change takes place this image depicts that space.
