It’s All A Bit Zen.

cut 1


The carving begins! The final drawing has been transferred in reverse onto the MDF block in compressed charcoal. Then I redrew everything with a brush and walnut ink. And now I’m cutting. After all the rush and stress of the past few weeks, it feels a bit Zen to quietly carve into the wood, carefully scribing the lines and curves with nothing but the sound of my breathing to accompany me. It’s very meditative.

This is a large woodcut commissioned by Sky Arts television channel for ART50. You can read more about what I’m doing here.

      Thanks Helen. It’s a very dystopian work, but that’s how I feel about the world at the moment.
