POOL. Reduction lino print.

This image is based on reflections in a man made pool situated in the parklsnds that surround the CBD of Adelaide.

It is a reduction lino print hand printed in an edition of 5 on acid free Stonehenge paper. Printed in 2018 the image is 12cms x 14.5cms in size using Graphic Chemical water based inks.

My lino prints are influenced by Japanese woodblock printing. I like the well defined, bold flat lines with flat, often limited colours. The forms and composition are arranged in flat spaces in generally a vertical, horizontal, asymmetrical, simple composition

This pool was in a quiet tranquil part of the parklands and it was this tranquility and peacefulness that I was inspired to express.Hopefully the image will provide a moment of calm relaxation for the viewer.

Four of the edition are available for purchase. For details click HERE
