Hope & Forgetfulness

Lino Block Print

This image comes from a tryptych of images produced in the mid eighties. This was the central image and derives from a dream (as most of my work did at the time). The elephant was standing at the end of a tunnel in Riversley Park, Nuneaton, where I went to school some years earlier. In the final set of three images it was flanked by an image of Crouch End Broadway, North London (where I lived at the time) and on the other side Ferdinand & Imelda Marcos waiting for a connection at Kings Cross underground. If I searched the relevent note books I’m sure I could find the cause of this all. The central image has been one of the most prolific sellers at exhibition.

It was produced as a lino print & collograph, burnished down by hand onto hand made Loktha papers.
