Line Figures

For this series of Linocut work Mark has been experimenting with line and the human form. Mark has been inspired by calligraphic letters, the curves and varying line thickness to use similar lines on his figures. He started with the single line figures then also tried leaving the inside of the figures meaning they would be more solid in volume. Mark has mostly tried to make them not look like carved linocuts, so tried to keep them very clean, carving out all of the surrounding area to the carvings. Monoprints are available, as well as editions, Experimenting with colour gives each piece a unique feeling.
