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 .
Here are some of the prints from both sides of the ocean that took part in an exchange this year , the prints were shown in cirencester in march , and the prints from the gloucestershire will be shown in manhattan in June, sadly though cant quite afford to pop over the atlantic to atttend the private view!
A great range of prints , you can see more at the tumblr site i have set up here!
Here is the finished show, and I think we did pretty darn good!
It was a lovely mix of work in a variety of print mediums, and if there are any of the artists work you would like to see a bit closer please visit our group website! where you might find some more images .
