Dungeness - Linocut Print
Swallows and Oystercatchers swirl across the shingle whilst a Wheatear keeps a cautious eye on the comings and goings in the fishermen's sheds and houses in this original limited edition linocut print entitled ‘Dungeness’ by Steve Duffy.
At the top of the print is the Old Lighthouse and the Round house, just along the road from The Rubber House, designed by Simon Conder, with it's attendant Airstream Caravan.
Dungeness is one of Steve’s favourite places; the fish and chips at The Pilot are always excellent he says.
Living in Rye on the East Sussex coast, artist and potter Steve Duffy is never far away from the inspiration for many of his creations.
Coming from a family with rich sea faring traditions, it perhaps not surprising that his work is imbued with strong coastal imagery.
The linocut of Dungeness is made from some of the many sketches and drawings Steve made on recent trips to the ness.
With clean flowing lines his carefully considered designs capture striking yet simple images.
A linocut is a printmaking technique similar to that of the woodcut. The image is carved into a block of hessian covered by a thick piece of linoleum and then inked and pressed on paper to create a print. The technique really came into its own after artists like Picasso and Matisse began to work in the medium.
Each one of these limited edition prints is an original work of art and is technically known as an impression. They are supplied ready mounted with the option of being framed within a simple oak surround. Individually hand printed, signed and numbered by the artist.
Available mounted in an acid free mount ready for framing or supplied in either a black or oak finished frame ready for hanging.
