Splendid Blue Wren

This rendition of the Splendid Blue Wren has used 54 separate pieces of paper. To create the colours of the wren’s feathers 50 pieces of paper have been cut specifically to match the linocut print, then glued into place. The overprint of the wren is an original linocut, placed over the ‘chine colle’ (the application of fine paper to create colour). This print was then placed on its collage background of handmade papers.

This is a one-off artwork that is also available as an archival print once sold.
