Landscape and the outdoors is a reoccurring theme in my work over the last few years. I am often drawn to the idea of being small in a big world as well as a sense of fragility. I like the idea of the viewer’s personal narrative that is constructed when viewing the image. This image was based on how I imagine the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York might look. I wanted to create a sense of space, emptiness but also the feeling of being able to go and explore and discover. Heartland is a four colour screen print of an original illustration that I’ve done. Its printed onto 250gsm Fabriano Unica 50% Cotton cream paper. The size of the print is 28 by 41 cm with the paper size being 35 by 50cm. The print has been hand printed by myself and is sold unframed and is shipped in a sturdy postal tube. Frame and mount not included.
