Themes and Variations, an Anthology of Linocuts

Back to List


« Previous Next »

Many great composers revelled in the practice of taking a theme of music and developing it into interpretations and variations.

My thought was to take this concept and explore the visual themes of abstraction and geometric rhythms through the immediacy of the linocut technique, and then develop multiple variations of those themes.

This body of work is comprised of two components; the major component is an edition of four books of 43 prints each housed in specially constructed book-boxes. As well, some of these images are mounted as limited edition stand-alone prints. 30 odd plates have been used, either singularly or in a multiple, over printing format; variations on a theme.
