End of the academic year...

... and that means I can devote a little time to my more traditional art practices in contrast to my research. I think that there is going to be a crossover point as I venture further into Virtual Reality - see earlier blog posts here and do visit my more academic research blog The Sexual Futurologist if you would like to know more... I have got Tiltbrush software for Virtual Reality and will start producing digital practice work during this summer.

But, in the meantime, I still really enjoy the visceral quality of lino cutting and printing - its something so simple and satisfying... my whole lino print studio is in a small carrier bag in the kitchen - I usually work on the lino in the living room - I just clear a  kitchen worktop and print away... rolling the ink over the finished cut, placing the paper over the inked lino, and burnishing each print by hand with the back of a metal spoon.

My most recent print, 'Hare on the hill' is a specific work I have made dedicated to the animal, as it has many sacred mythologies and traditions surrounding it. We see the hare in the foreground, having come from the surrounding hills. In the distance we can see a lightning tree. What has happened between the Hare and the tree is for you to decipher...

If you would like one of the prints please do message me for further information, or visit my Facebook page.
