Selworthy Ponies is a jigsaw/key block linocut printed in two stages. The ponies in the print are Exmoor ponies wild grazing on Selworthy Beacon in Somerset which lies within the boundaries of Exmoor National Park. It reflects a blustery wild day with big skies, intermittent rain and splashes of sun, typical English weather. Despite the big skies and windy day there was underneath it all an overwhelming sense of peace from the ponies, who are grazing today as their ancestors have for thousands of years. The inks used for this print are Aqua-Linoldruck Schmincke inks which have high lightfast properties. The paper is Daler-Rowney Canford paper 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.
