Ctenanthe Oppenheimiana by Kerry Day is a 7 layered reduction lino cut printed in a varied limited edition of 10.

Reduction linocuts are printed from one piece of lino, cutting it again for each new colour in the design. All the prints for an edition have to be printed before moving on to the next colour, because once the lino is re-cut you can’t make any more. Depending on how many colours are use, at the end there may be very little of the lino block left uncut.

“I can lose myself in the intensity and precision of the lino cut process and the recognition that the piece is not finished until I cut that final line…Recently I find myself moving on from people to plants. Inspiration has come from the many cacti and plants I share my home and studio with – the strong profiles of my spiky friends and the marvellously named Elephant Ear plant.Like many artists before me, I am fascinated by the shapes and contours of leaves, and the joy of discovering new patterns within the vibrant green foliage.”

"Originally from London, I trained as a ceramicist at Bath Spa University and now live and work in Bristol. I completed an MA in Multi Disciplinary Printmaking at the University of the West of England in 2011 and am now based in my studio at Hamilton House, Bristol. My current body of work is about the plants that I share my home and studio with. I am drawn to their architectural shapes and contours. The wide range of leaf colour and pattern in these cacti, succulents and leafy plants allow me to develop layers of texture and tone within the forms. I use a mixture of reduction lino print and mono print (using the rollers like paint brushes) to produce variable edition prints. I sometimes etch into the lino with caustic soda to create more brush like marks making each picture unique."
