About the Item

Darkening Sky by John Scott Martin [2021] original Linocut Print on Collage Image size: H:36.5 cm x W:36.5 cm Complete Size of Unframed Work: H:36.5 cm x W:36.5 cm x D:0.1cm Frame Size: H:49 cm x W:49 cm x D:0.3cm Sold Framed Please note that insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look Darkening Sky is a unique original linocut on collage by John Scott Martin. The natural tones of the sails contrasted with the dark sky gives the piece a confident and earthly quality. Having cut a series of lino blocks, I prepare collage backgrounds. I handprint onto the collages, which are made up of coloured, textured and decorative papers. Each collage background is different, therefore each print is an original. The mood and dynamics of an individual print can be changed by the use of collage. The printed results are then mounted and or framed. John was born in Nottinghamshire, studying painting and graphic design at Nottingham College of Art in the 1960’s. He now lives in rural Warwickshire, just about as far from the sea as you can get. This doesn’t stop him from making frequent trips to the sea. In his paintings he likes his ships and boats to move and this effects how he gathers his reference material. His primary source being an extensive library of his own photographic images. This is added to whenever possible, often with no time for a sketch, but always with time for the camera to record.
