From the artist:
At Canterbury College of Art, when I was a student in the sixties, relief printmaking (mainly lino cutting) was a major activity in the Design Department. In 1989 I bought a restored Columbian press and returned to lino and wood block printmaking. The fascination with pattern and line when cutting away with the various lino tools is a constant source of enjoyment and even an obsession. I am influenced by ethnic and Aboriginal images and have an abiding admiration for the work of Edward Bawden.
The linocuts in the exhibition are based on things that I see or amuse me and I get the urge to turn them into a linocut. I mainly work in black and white at the moment. Sometimes with small areas of applied colour added to provide a contrast.
