There’s always a hint of ‘Emily’ in my lino cuts. Always. This one came to me after a period of creative funk which can be a frightening concept when everything has been flowing like a river for so long.
I had been drawing comfy chairs while in the midsts of the funk, it was all I could come up with. Mid century chairs, with buttons, velvet or Featherstone-style.
Then, she came. With a hot beverage – a blue chair, her towel slipped. The ‘Emily element’ was added.
