Original Linocut Print of Arlington House, Margate - a beautiful brutalist concrete tower block. I wanted to portrait this immense structure in a way that made it look slightly ethereal, with some of the sky reflected in the lines of the building (see the blue close-up photo).
Size: 19 x 27.5 on 25.5 x 34 (roughly A4 on A3, give or take)
Paper: Bread & Butter printmaking paper, white, smooth, 270 gsm, soft torn or cut edges.
Phthalo Blue (Cranfield)
Phthalo Green (Cranfield)
Napthol Red (Cranfield)
Dairylide Yellow (Cranfield)
Winter Grey (Hawthorn)
*please be aware that this is a multilayer reduction print and that some sections where layers overlap will appear more shiny. The Grey colour version is more shiny than the others due to the inks used*
*the sky on the Green and they Grey colour versions is extended and slightly more mottled in texture- see the close-up photo of the grey.*
This is a limited edition of 12 prints in each colour way, and no further prints can be made. Each print will be numbered and signed.
I design and carve each layer into linoleum before inking the plates and hand printing them using Albert, a giant restored cast-iron Victorian book press.
These prints will be posted flat.
