Hi everybody, I know you have been waiting a while, but I am finally ready to reveal the “Misplaced Bunnies” series I have been working on. I so enjoyed developing this series and it is very special to me for various reasons. One being that it is my very first time ever I used lino cutting and secondly what it represents to me.
I used the bunnies I always drew, and placed them in unrelated famous masterpieces, to remind us of finding our place (and ourselves) in an unknown universe and making a difference. These seemingly whimsical artworks carries a deeper meaning and really spoke to my values and purpose in life.
It is exactly one year ago this month that I was first introduced to this technique, by doing a workshop in Stellenbosch with Theo Vorster, who really encouraged me to carry on with this medium.I have put together a little photo montage explaining the production steps.
“Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharpgouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller, and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a printing press.”
I will still continue adding to this collection over time, so make sure you subscribe to my Newsletter so you don’t miss the new editions!
