Swingin’cision 2018

The blend of being an artist and a dancer was the creative inspiration to produce this series of linocut prints. The result is a fusion of these two passions, creating an expression of energy, of simple and dynamic shapes and bold images; ready to fire up the viewer’s imagination. The Swing music and dances of that age are the message, the medium is the printmaking technique of Linocut where the design is incised in to the linoleum surface with the uncarved areas representing an image of the final piece hand-printed on the paper. Different styles of dancing produce different types of energy that are reflected in the lines and different styles of cutting.
