Linocut and ink
210mm x 297mm
LInocut is a print technique that is only a century old. Said to have been first attempted in Germany, it can be extremely effective.
Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse were both proponents of the technique with the most famous Australian artist Margaret Preston.
I am drawn to this technique because of the stark colours contained within black lines. Very vibrant and striking.
