Limited edition, reduction hand-printed linocut "Bee Kind". From a limited edition of 15 prints, each linocut is hand-printed in water-based ink.
At the start of the pandemic in 2020, our situation of social distancing and isolation inspired me to create this linocut: depicting us as families living within the individual cells of a hive, together but separate. The wonderful key workers and volunteers were still out there, demonstrating wonderful kindness and bravery. Some of the beehive cells are filled with honey, with the worker bee spelling out the phrase Bee Kind.
Linocuts are prints - but not in the sense of being reproductions of an original. Each print is itself an original artwork. In an edition, all of the limited edition prints are created using the same block, or blocks. The prints in an edition will be very similar but not identical to one another.
