Artwork description:

It's October, the leaves have just started to change colour, as Autumn or Fall arrive. You are wondering around dinosaur bones in the Met, you glance out the window in the corner and that's the view. You can only be in one city in the world and its beautiful.

I love New York! Here is my celebration of the ever changing Manhattan skyline, and the colourful trees of Central Park.

A reduction linocut is a totally hand made print. No machines are used. Only one piece of Lino is used throughout the process and so no prints can be reproduced.

I draw the image I want to create on the Lino, in reverse. Using carving tools I take away all the lightest parts which will be the colour of the the paper, I then ink up the Lino with a colour and press this onto some thick printing paper. Anything I want to be that colour I carve away and ink up the next colour and so the process goes until the image appears.

This print went through this process 20 times, to achieve the final image. I used oil based Calico artist inks and the paper is Somerset satin in white.

The printed area is approximately 40.5cm x 22.2 and the paper size is approximately 47cm x 28.4cm.

Please note, outside the U.K. and USA local customs/duty charges may be incurred. These are the responsibility of the customer and outside my control.
