“Fragmented Horizons” expresses my love of repeating patterns and my need to both create order from chaos and make art that provides a peaceful and meditative experience, where I can lose myself in the creative process. This is one of a collective body of work called “In The Wind”, a series of visual artworks, along with an accompanying poem, that are based on a recurring dream I have where I rise from the ground and fly over land. The overall design is also a repeating pattern when printed in multiple panels alongside each other, collaged, or digitized. This artwork was created by hand printing my carved linocut onto paper with varying coloured relief inks. I then cut these into alternating 1x2” and 2x2” pieces, then collaged them onto a panel such that the repeating pattern is realized with movement and shift in colour. Relief printing is an ancient printing technique where the artist carves a design into a solid block of material, in this case linoleum. Once the design is complete, the block is inked with a roller. Paper is then placed over the block and hand rubbed or run through a manual press to transfer the inked design onto the paper.
