Polly Marix Evans Linocut Prints
Bring a little magic into your life with a bewitching linocut print from Polly Marix Evans.
'She liked to lose herself in a good book' is an open edition, lino-printed with Caligo Safewash black ink on Zerkall printmaking paper of 145gsm.
The books Polly has chosen to feature in this print are some of her favourite to read and re-read, these are: Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris, Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge, The Shipping Forecast by Nic Compton, The Outrun by Amy Liptrot, The Winter Of The Witch by Katherine Arden, and The Book Of Myths by Amy Cruse.
'There must be magic' is an edition of 50, lino-printed on acid-free Zerkall printmaking paper of 145gsm.
Polly's prints often feature strong female figures, and this one also features a magical influence that can also often be found in many of Polly's enchanting prints.
Each print is signed, titled and editioned just below the image. Please note that these prints are supplied unframed and unmounted. As with all prints, it is advisable to use a window mount when framing to avoid the glass resting directly on the artwork.
ABOUT THE MAKER: Polly is based in the Eden Valley, Cumbria. Her childhood love of printmaking blossomed during her Art Foundation course and led her to study Fine Art Printmaking at The Manchester School of Art. She specialises in linocut, inspired by myths, legends and fairy tales, the numerous books she reads and ideas which pop into her head when she least expects it. She depicts strong female images, often combined with stylised text, to send an empowering message to the viewer. Polly also draws inspiration from experiences in life: the struggle to love and value yourself in the world where the female voice is often ignored or suppressed, the difficulties of recovering after trauma or the need to set boundaries and say what you think.
