Screenprinting using screen block

Lighthouse screenprint
Lighthouse

My first screenprint using screen block. A two layer print based on Tarbat Ness lighthouse in Easter Ross, North East Scotland. It’s actually red and white but I only had time for two layers in the class where I made the print.

This image is also available as a blank note card. See shop for info.

Inspired by High Rise by J G Ballard (1975), this book contains rubber stamping and monoprints of imaginary brutalist high rise buildings. The typed text is key words taken from the book, but breaks down and eventually collapses as does the life of the inhabitants of the fictional high rise.

During the lockdown of 2020, one of the things I missed the most was being able to be at the seaside. This poem by John Masefield is an appropriate title and theme for a book expressing my longing for the sea.

Pentland Hills

Small concertina sketch books taken up the Pentlands Hills on Lynda’s daily walks during the corona virus lockdown in April 2020 were used as source material for this monoprint. Man’s impact on the landscape is a particular interest.
