Momentum Mori – Lino Prints

Type
Printmaking, Lino cut, Relief print
Description

This is an on-going series of prints which use original photography by the artist as the basis for an exploration of his initial emotional reaction to a range of paleontological and deep-sea zoology exhibits in museums. There is an intense fascination with the extant traces of animals that are either long dead or live almost entirely hidden from view. The experience of witnessing these specimens first-hand brings a freshness to the artists' perception despite the age and sterility of the subjects.
