What I am enjoying most about this series is discovering and learning about so many new artists. Thank you everyone.
I loved the graphic side of Lurcat's work. I would love to have experimented with a lino cut because I was so impressed by what the others had done before but time and circumstances were against me - this time. And then the idea of a notan-style interpretation popped into my head. Having drawn it out and ironed it onto fabric, I started cutting it out and immediately realised I had been crazy. It was so intricate and with so many fiddly shapes. I'm surprised I didn't mis-cut anything. It was when I was struggling with the second 'man' that I remembered a friend has a CriCut machine and I could have asked her to cut it for me. Too late, so this is all my hand work!
I had intended to put the cut-out on square but when I laid it out I liked it on point better. Had I known I could have made it bigger (and less fiddly!). Below are the pieces that inspired me.
Thanks Jinnie, Hilary
