The Lino Cut (12/18)


The unmistakable, spikey silhouette of palms take centre stage in Merryn Delves's linoprint. As the lino is gauged out traces of the bock are left in between each channel and, in this instance, serve as a kind of halo surrounding the palms evoking a sense of heat and celebration. 

The print is based on some trees Merryn saw whilst walking through Melbourne Botanical gardens last year.

Merryn Delves is a printmaker based in Cornwall. She creates original handmade prints using a mixture of linocut and screen printing techniques. Merryn enjoys the process of lino cutting and the patterns that are unintentionally created when cutting away the design. She has a fluid process where nothing is fully planned out and likes to see what happens through the process. Each piece is inspired by nature with an interest in botany.

To learn more about Merryn's practice, artistic influences and inspirations we spoke with her here.
