Primavera Birches

Primavera Birches
Image size: 375mm x 375mm

Primavera Birches is a much larger version of Spring Birches, printed from a re-drawn image and re-cut on much larger lino blocks. After printing Autumn Birches and Spring Birches with small lino blocks, I wanted to scale them up. Why should lino prints have to be small?

The result is Primavera Birches and Golden Birches. Much as I liked the feeling of an Autumn setting for these trees, it seemed to me that I could balance its elegiac potential with a more vibrant, fresher treatment: nature showing its positivity, its new growth, rather than the heavier summer air of expectation. Whereas the autumnal birches were mature and felt as if they had fulfilled their purpose, these new spring birches were young and full of promise, but still held their mystery. What would the future hold? At the larger scale, the depth - and so, I think, the mystery - deepens.

The new images of Primavera Birches and Golden Birches complement each other nicely and, hung next to each other in a room or opposite each other in a hallway, introduce a sense of seasonality and the passage of time to a home, as if a small part of nature has been brought inside. Prints of Primavera Birches and Golden Birches are sold separately.

Primavera Birches is printed using Hawthorn inks on stiff 300gsm Snowdon Cartridge paper. Image size 375mm x 375mm. Paper size 700mm x 480mm. Edition of 20.

The price shown includes postage and packing for delivery to a UK address. Every print dispatched is wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and securely packaged in a sturdy cardboard tube, and delivered to the address required by post via Royal Mail or Parcel Force (depending on the size of the print) and signed for upon delivery.

If you would like a print delivered to an address outside the UK, please let me know when ordering and I will investigate whether you need to pay anything extra to cover the increased postage price.

Because of the stiffness of the paper upon which this print is printed, after delivery please take care removing it from the packaging. After removal from the roll, please allow the paper to relax into flatness of its own accord, rather than attempting to force it flat by applying weight, which may also affect the print itself. Patience and the normal atmospheric relative humidity of air are the best means to flatten the print after delivery.
