the first cut is the deepest - limited edition linocuts

It's all about the boundaries...

Since moving to Derbyshire last Autumn I've become fascinated by the dry stone wall and hawthorn hedgerows that delineate the landscape. Within my current AA2A (artists access to art colleges) residency at Derby University I'm re-exploring linocut and print as I consider these edges/boundaries and what they represent to me personally. 

My linocuts received such a positive response on social media that I decided to offer them as a limited edition... If you would like to buy either a dry stone wall or hawthorn hedgerow print please email me at hello@karenlogan.com. 

There is a choice of paper, white gives a bright contrast to the black print, soft white is actually a pale cream colour and echos the faded paper of my childhood fairy tale book (see below).

Alison Uttley was born in Cromford, Derbyshire in 1884. I loved this Fairy Tales book as a child and still do. I'm hoping, within my linocuts to echo the illustrations by Ann Strugnell, they had a deep effect on little Karen and set me up to see the magic and wonder within the everyday and familiar.
