Taking a pause on a walk, the sun through the clouds, the breeze through the grass and the space stretching out in front of me. A lot to fit into what is quite a small print. This spot can be found in Shackleford, Surrey, and is part of the North Downs Way, a beautiful trail that runs across the South East of England. There are two stages to this linocut print. The first stage is a jigsaw linocut and the second is a key block that is printed on the top. The inks used for this print are Schmincke Aqua-Linoldruck which are water soluble inks with high lightfast properties. The paper is Daler-Rowney Canford Ice White 150gsm. 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.
