This vintage inspired cat lino print is one of a series based on the vintage record label of His Masters Voice which features a little dog intently listening to the his masters voice through an old gramophone. This is my take on how a cat, in this case my sister’s cat Tyger, would respond.
The image size is approximately 19cm (W) x 13cm (H) not including a small border. Unframed, numbered and signed and one of an edition of 50 on Kitakata paper which has a warm, natural colour.
Creating and carving linoprints has become an all-consuming artistic practice for Carolyn with her subject matter an eclectic mix of nature, animals, mythology and daily observations. She especially likes the bold graphic nature inherent in linocuts that lends itself to many applications. Carolyn enjoys every aspect of the process from pondering ideas, sketching and refining and transferring to lino. She loves the carving process using traditional tools and the mindfulness of the practice. She finds a magic that comes in the final stage of printing when the ideas and the lino’s characteristics form a collaboration. Sources of inspiration for her include: animals, nature, books, music, art, other eras and anything that peaks her curiosity. INSTAGRAM | WEBSITE
