About this work of Art
Boxhill from Denbies is an original limited edition Reduction linocut by Jennifer Jokhoo a Surrey Hills based Printmaker/painter.
I endeavour to depict the ever changing effects of light and colour at different times of the day and seasonal change. I am fortunate to live in the Surrey hills and subject matter is often discovered whilst out walking the dog. This print was derived from sketches and photos of a local walk along the river.
There are 10 prints in this edition. It was created using a relief printing method whereby a multi coloured print is pulled from a single block. The lino is inked with the lightest colour and the first printing is made. The areas to remain that colour are then cut away. This is the process for each layer, therefore it cannot be rewound or repeated. As a result Jennifer’s editions are kept very small.
Her linocuts are drawn and cut by hand and her preferred inks are oil-based due to the vivid colours that can be achieved. They are also more agreeable with colour mixing. The linocut was printed on Fabriano Rosapina paper.
