This listing is for proofs of "Metamorphosis" linocut. They didn't make the edition due to imperfections, either over-inked or underinked or slightly patchy, or a bit of stray ink outside the image - please see the closeups for examples of imperfections.
I also have a one-off colour test proof in vibrant green.
Original linocut "Metamorphosis" (from Greek metamorphōsis - "transformation"). Inspired by one of nature's most magical metamorphoses - a transformation of caterpillars into butterflies. I really enjoyed carving this block which was time-consuming (nearly 100 hrs) but rather therapeutic.
Carved on linoleum and handprinted with oil-based ink in rich black (or vibrant green) on beautiful heavyweight printmaking paper Somerset.
Image size 30x30 cm, paper size appr 40x39cm.
Deckled edges so can be framed mounted or unmounted (with exposed edges).
Proofs will be titled and signed in pencil.
Due to the large size will be shipped carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue and cellophane and rolled in a sturdy postal tube to ensure safe delivery.
