Nina Sage - The Lighthouse - Dorset - Original Linocut


The Lighthouse - Original Linocut by local printmaker Nina Sage

The inspiration for this print came from a family holiday to Dorset and from Nina's lifelong love of the natural world and her experiences working as an Ecologist, in the water industry in particular. It is no surprise that water and the life within it is a recurring theme in her work and many of her prints feature the wild life habitats and species she worked with in the field.

This is an original, hand printed, reduction linocut - so one piece of lino is used to create the whole image, printing a colour , cutting away and then overprinting - so at the end not much if any lino is left - so it cannot be reused - once the edition is decided on that is it.

Artist : Nina Sage

MEDIUM : Reduction Linocut -oil based relief ink on fabriano paper Edition of 30. VE Edition 3/30

Signed and numbered by the artist. VE means variable or varied edition. With a variable edition print the image is usually the same coming from the plates or block, but the artist is intentionally manipulating the printing in some way, quite often this can be a change in colour or texture by choosing to cover or wipe areas of ink away from the plate.

IMAGE SIZE : 10cm x 30cm (portrait format)
