Original Linocut - Little frizzle hen (that is their actual name - these are chickens with an unusual genetic mutation which causes their feathers to be reticulated and curve outwards)
Paper: 15 x 15 cm, warm white Somerset Satin paper
Print: approx. size 11.5 x 10.5 cm, black Cranfield Caligo ink
Linocuts prints are made by carving a design into traditional linoleum plates which are then inked up and printed in my two Victorian printing presses. All the areas which have been carved away will not print onto the paper, therefore leaving the paper white. Single-colour linocuts are very striking and bold. It is also possible to create multiblock prints with several overlapping plates, or reduction prints where the same plate is gradually carved away as the layers are printed.
