Linocut on Japanese paper…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s existential angst is centred around the phrase ‘animal husbandry’.

Oh, don’t worry, it’s just another of my recent linocut prints. This one is about 6″ x 8″ and is on Japanese paper. I have only recently discovered Japanese paper; it is wonderful to print on, it just sucks the ink up! It involves much less swearing and shouting and ripping things up than trying to print on ordinary drawing paper; it is a pleasure to use…
So what’s going on here? Yes, I know, it is a bit crazy isn’t it? But yes, it’s supposed to be – just look at it jump and skip about! Someone said that it looks a bit Kandinsky-ish – ‘Wow!’ I said, ‘Thank you!…’
I don’t usually give titles to my prints; I don’t know why. Perhaps it is because they are relatively small and don’t really deserve one. Maybe today, as I am showing it to you dear reader, I should come up with something – something a bit arty, mysterious, and impressive… Hm… let me think for a moment… Yes, this print is called – ‘Erwin Schrödinger and the Secret Stairs.’ How’s that?… It’s always good to throw a bit of physics in – arty people generally don’t get physics and it really stops them in their tracks…
