Lucy Breeden: Linoleum Block Prints


To make these prints, I drew my image onto the linoleum, then cut away the parts I didn't want to be inked (the negative spaces). I rolled ink into the linoleum, then pressed the inked block onto the paper. When the block is lifted from the paper, the image is left there. It's a fun medium, but tricky, because a false cut can't be corrected: once that slice of linoleum has been cut, it can't be put back.
