Linocuts (page 1 of 3)

Lino cutting is a method of relief printing where an image is gouged from a piece of linoleum and prints are made from the resulting ‘plate’. A range of gouging tools can be used to produce a variety of marks and textures.
The finished design is always a mirror image of the design cut into the lino, so this needs to be taken into account at the outset. For best results a flatbed printing press is used to produce the final work.

The use of linoleum as a method of relief printmaking was introduced by German artists between 1903 and 1913. Other artists who have made images using this method include MC Escher, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso.

A limited edition of lino cuts involves destroying the lino ‘plate’ by scoring it through once the number of declared prints have been made.
