Inner Landscape LinocutPosted: January 12, 2013
Back to printmaking. This is one of my favourite colour linocuts. I made it using the same process–subtraction printing–that I described in Mental Gymnastics. The print is one of several abstract ones I made in 1993. I didn’t plan the design ahead, but let the work develop as I moved along, allowing shapes to appear. I then viewed the print from all four sides and decided on this orientation. In it, I see two figures–the one on the right reminds me a bit of Edvard Munch’s The Scream. The setting seems to me to be a cave where the viewer is looking out onto water, a beach and a night sky. I call the print Inner Landscape.
