Views of Denny Isle
In honour to Hokusai 36 views of Mt Fuji, these prints all focus on a small rocky outcrop called Denny Isle, an unoccupied island in the middle river Severn in the UK that can be seen on the horizon. All are carborundum and dry-point prints are personal responses to this every changing landscape..
During the lock-down due to the worldwide pandemic I began series of carborundum mini prints with limited resources, off-cuts of paper, donated ink and simple die-cutting machine in keeping with the ‘make-do’ spirit during these unprecedented times. These abstracted small landscape prints are inspired by walks along the River Severn reflecting on current affairs and the changing seasons since the Covid-19 pandemic began in 2020.
Indigenous hawthorns are ubiquitous to the types of trees that grow in these liminal spaces between the warehouses and industrial areas. Such trees are often disregarded, considered expendable by the construction industry where very little woodland is left in UK. These contorted and broken forms relate to how this landscape has become commodify and distorted by economic concerns.
