Here are three artists who’s etched lino prints I like and find inspiring.
I have chosen three prints from each artist; follow the links to see more work and be inspired……
“Steve Edwards is best known for his large London cityscapes. His original prints combine processes including linocut, lino etching and monotype, and as a result are hard to pin down; they have a crisp photographic quality that hits you on first glance, but take a closer look and you see textures, marks and intriguing colour that give his work mesmerising depth. Steve uses Lino etching and monotype to add painterly, expressive marks to his moody skies, while the crisp edges of silhouetted buildings are created using traditional linocut.”
“The areas of printmaking that she specialises in are relief printmaking and lithography. In particular she has concentrated on an etched lino technique to produce graphic work that echoes the strong painterly qualities that she has become known for. ”
“The work aims to convey the beauty of everyday objects by placing them in abstract spaces, using colour and texture to enhance the forms and enrich the compositions.”
