The American Dream pop to the present Exhibition at the British Museum

I saw The American Dream pop to the present print exhibition at the British Museum and I highly recommend a visit especially if you are interested in print. This exhibition explores the last 60 years of American history through the printed output of great artists responding to the changing world around them. The exhibition is visually and historically dense with intelligent art. I picked up postcards of two of my favourite prints from the exhibition.

Printing Pear Pop Linocuts

At last I’ve been able to start printing some new images this year; these are the first prints of ‘Pear Pop’ linocut with chine–collé (collaged paper), companion pieces to ‘Apple Pop‘ linocuts from last year.

I do intend to add more collaged leaves to these prints once the ink has dried – similar to the ‘Apple Pop’ prints.

Printed with Caligo relief water-based ink on specialist printing paper, Zerkall 150 gsm. The colour collaged paper is Japanese straw silk paper.
