This print is a multi block linocut. It was created using four separate blocks printed one on top of the other to complete the final image. This print was the result of a "Stop the car!" moment. I have always loved the sight of hay rolls sitting out in the field and I couldn't resist this field on the Watchet to Blue Anchor road in Somerset. The heat of the height of summer, the neatness of a nearly completed harvest and the vast beautiful spaces that are our farmlands give me a feeling of peace and completion. Another harvest is nearly done, nature has shared her bounty with us and we are nearly ready for the colder months that are just around the corner. The inks used for this print are Caligo Safe Wash inks which are water soluble oil based ink with high lightfast properties. The paper is Fabriano Unica 250gsm printmaking paper. As each print is inked and printed by hand there will be slight variations between each print, each one is in it’s own way an original.

Lisa Benson, artist, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. I am an artist and printmaker living on the Somerset coast in the UK. After a career that included art projects for the youth service and a stint as the Youth Arts Coordinator for South West Surrey, illustrating for a national magazine, and several years as a freelance graphic designer, I finally discovered printmaking, predominantly linocut, in 2017. When I found printmaking something clicked, this was the artistic discipline I had been searching for all those years. It combines a carving element, a drawing and painting element, continual problem solving and requires precision amongst the chaos. The thrill of pulling a print never gets old. I am hugely drawn to nature, as so many of us are. Time has become a recurring theme in my work and I find I am often drawn to moments in time that happen today as they could have for hundreds if not thousands of years.
