Original limited edition linocut print. Inspired by the glorious view from my studio window from my time in Kenya, this linocut is a snippet of the splendid Golden Shower plant wall I looked out on to doused in the glowing equatorial sun.

My method of working up a reduction linocut print begins with an initial, loose plan of the colours and number of layers involved. The print then evolves naturally as layers are built up from light to dark or taking them down again from dark to light.

A total of 15 layers reduction, the leaves within this particular linocut are built up using a monotype technique of inking up the block - as in a painterly approach, blending the same leafy colour palette directly on the lino block with a roller, where each print within this edition results as a unique print.

Part of the Garden Plants of Kenya series - a body of work exploring equatorial and tropical urban flora in print form produced during Mandeep's year in Kenya.

Signed and numbered Unique Print edition of 22.

Linocut carefully hand carved on Japanese vinyl, hand pulled on Fabriano paper with an etching press using high quality oil based inks.

Your original print will arrive unframed, wrapped in acid free tissue and protected in sturdy packaging during transit.

Paper size: 35.5 x 25 cm
Print size: 29 x 20 cm

Please note, due to the handprinted nature, each print is unique and there will be slight variations within each edition.
