Alhambra II - Folksy

Shared by catamongthepigeons in the Paper Crafts

Product Description:

From a series of linocut prints comprising of 4 images based on architectural details of the Alhambra.
I visited the Alhambra in 2010 and was astounded by the beauty of the palace.

This series of prints is inspired by the decorative moulded plaster casts that adorn the Alhambra; in situ these casts are white, some retain traces of the original bright colours that once sang out from the walls. My prints are concentrating on specific details taken from walls of casts; taking forms that I find compelling, I have redrawn and colourised these images, trying to capture an echo of how these decorative casts might once have looked, making prints that delight the eye and mind.
