Alpine Summer linoprint - Grace Gladdish
Alpine Summer linoprint - 2021
"Alpine Summer” is a hand painted linocut inspired by the flowers that proliferate in alpine areas during the Tasmanian Summer.
The vegetation of Tasmanian alpine areas are a fascination for the artist. Grace explores the extraordinary range of textures, shapes and colours that seem almost to be intentionally harmoniously ‘planted’. A focus on the compositional aspects of the placement of the plants, and the rich colouring, translates these into a linocut that seeks to convey the unique sense of place. This piece features, Richea Scoparia with its spiky leaves and vibrant red flowers is set against the deep shadows of the alpine rocks.
The linocut measures approximately 30cm (12") wide by 40cm (18") high, not including signature. The paper is larger still, as pictured. Each print is numbered and signed with this being a small edition of 25. Printed using oil-based printing ink on Stonehenge printmakers paper. Each linocut is then individually hand painted with watercolour.
There is a 2-3 week lead time on all unframed prints as the artist individually handpaints each linoprint upon order - please consider this when purchasing.
