Another jumping jiggling linocut…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s existential angst is centred around the sound of the word ‘mellifluous’.

How about another of my lino prints?

I printed this one earlier this year; it is, as usual, untitled, and on nice thin Japanese Kizuki paper (I must order some more of that!) about A4 in size, using oil-based black ink.
As you see I am yet again making use of that useful device I came up with for cutting large radius equally spaced curves in lino – well, I made the thing, why not make full use of it? (device)
So, what do you think this work is all about?
Well don’t ask me, I’m only the artist! That is your department dear reader.
I might make a couple of comments about this intriguing design though:
What about that box of oddities in the middle? Just look at those writhing rectilinear microbes on the left! The other bits in the box look like a kit of parts to make something useful and interesting, don’t they? Perhaps an Interositor? At first I had the black border going all the way around the box, but it made it ‘jump out’ from the background a bit too much, so I cut away just some of the lines where they met the aforementioned white curves – there, that’s better, it makes the white bleed in making the whole thing far more confusing – me, I like a bit of confusion…
And, how about just some of the black stripes having ‘stars’ in them – does it hint of transparency do you think? I think the inclusion of the small industrial scene at the top is self-explanatory – so I won’t say anything about that…
Ho ho!…

    Perhaps it’s an environmental statement objecting to junk left in space? I get the feeling there is more to those parts in the box than is apparent by their presence….perhaps it’s sequential – parts on the left combine to make whole element in the center waiting to be destroyed by the club on the right. Well done! Now tell me, is it an interositor? I thought they had more parts…..

    A commentary on the Year of Culture perhaps…
