Limited edition of 9 original linocut prints
Actual print size approx 30 x 30 cm
Unmounted print paper size approx 42.5 x 42.5 cm
A handmade limited edition of 9 linocut prints featuring a pair of swans with their necks entwined in the shape of a heart, the universal symbol of love.
This print is a multi block, jigsaw linocut. There are four blocks with each block being cut into a number of pieces to form a jigsaw. This enables me to ink up different colours on the different parts of the jigsaw for each pass through the press.
Beautiful, graceful, regal, all describe the swan. They are well known for forming monogamous pairs and their pairings can last for a lifetime. These swans, for me, echo that gentle and yet deep affection of that bond. Water in some belief systems symbolises emotions, the ribbon like clouds echo wedding day ribbons and the swans themselves form the loose shape of a heart and the love that they share.
The inks used are Caligo Safe Wash which are oil based inks with high lightfast properties.
The paper is acid free printmaking paper.
Free Postage in the UK is included in the price of all the prints. For delivery to the EU and ROW please contact me for a quote.
