Weekly photo challenge … Oops.
I am a printmaker; coming into the creative world late in life. It has been a riotous journey, in the good way, although in the depths of disadvantage I have felt less than joyous. I have begun exhibiting work and even have sold some pieces. This has been the icing on the cake; however my most popular linocut has been the the result of several mistakes and tears.
Reduction print is a way of printing a linocut and often referred to is being the suicide print. It bears this namely rightly because as the print developes so the block becomes more more cut away; it is organic, dynamic and unforgiving … there is no going back.
so this ‘oops’ has given me a tears, a story and a little financial return.
