MYRTLE PIZZEY

HELIANTHUS

media: Linocut Print

£ TO BE CONFIRMED

MYRTLE writes: The tactile task of cutting a block has a great appeal. Before I draw a subject for a print I make observations at different times of day, so long before the process begins the composition is recorded in my mind. A black and white print from conception to realization may take three or four months. The majority of the colour images are created in natural light. The colour prints are a result of overlays of pure transparent colour, from light to dark; warm colours on one block, cool colours on another. I rarely print green; it is arrived at by overprinting yellows and oranges with transparent blue. Good registration is vital each edition is limited and cannot be repeated. I use Somerset Satin paper from St. Cuthbert's Mill to print on and their pastel paper for the colour drawings. I work from abstract responses to colour, shape, space, and form to arrive at realistic images.
