Limited Edition Reduction Linocuts

I produce between 6 and 12 limited editions every year, depending on the size of the image itself and the edition. Sometimes they're stand-alone images, sometimes part of a series. The majority of my editions are very small, numbering between 10 and 20 individual prints. Each one is printed by hand using a barren or a nipping press.

My linoucts are for the most part produced using the reduction method. This is a multi-layered process that has all its layers/colours cut and printed from one block of lino.

Describing the reduction process in words can be at best confusing but images illustrate the method with much greater clarity.

Mistakes (although I always hope there aren't going to be any!) cannot be rectified at a later stage, as there is no going back to an earlier cut of the block.

The block is essentially destroyed during the process, so unlike a linocut printed from multiple blocks (one block for each colour), a reduction print can never be reprinted.

Kittiwakes soaring

‘Kittiwakes soaring’ was one of 4 linocuts created for the ‘Birds of Wales’ invited group exhibition at Oriel Ynys Mon, Llangefni (on the Isle of Anglesey) in October 2017. The exhibition was one of the most popular ever held at the gallery, with visitor numbers higher than the gallery had seen in years. Only three ‘Kittiwakes soaring’ remain from this very popular edition of 20.
