A handmade limited edition of 9 linocut prints featuring a pair of swans with their necks entwined in the shape of a heart, the universal symbol of love. This print is a multi block, jigsaw linocut. There are four blocks with each block being cut into a number of pieces to form a jigsaw. This enables me to ink up different colours on the different parts of the jigsaw for each pass through the press. Beautiful, graceful, regal, all describe the swan. They are well known for forming monogamous pairs and their pairings can last for a lifetime. These swans, for me, echo that gentle and yet deep affection of that bond. Water in some belief systems symbolises emotions, the ribbon like clouds echo wedding day celebrations and the distant horizon gives them space to share their love for each other. The inks used are Caligo Safe Wash which are oil based inks with high lightfast properties. The paper is acid free printmaking paper.

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.
