Pilgrimage , Salmon

dscf4454dscf4450dscf4448

This was my unique Lino and monoprint, called Pilgrimage, for an exhibition of the same name shown at Gloucester Cathedral , a beautiful place for an exhibition .

This print I took  the theme pilgrimage and the first thing that came to mind was salmon going back up river  to spawn. So I lino cut my slamon , printed several of him, some on tissue paper, then monoprinted the background , and then using rabbit skin glue as it is neutral and I know it doesn`t show  too much, I pasted layers together with several of my salmon just staggered to give a sense of depth . then popped him in a box frame and mounted him so the warped and cockled paper hung suspened .
