    Inspired by a trip to Iceland; the Icelandic winter landscape with expanses of snow and ice glistening under the moon and sunlight.

    Colours for this reimagined landscape have been drawn from the blue/grey hues of the sky and ice; Wedgewood blue, buff titanium and graphite powder were used to evoke the mood of the morning moon as the light changed to sunrise, with the graphite powder reminiscent of the distinctive Icelandic black sand.

    Inspiration has also been taken from the Japanese woodblock printmaking art movement known as Shin-hanga (New prints), which merged together Ukiyo-e traditions from the East with European influences.

    This contemporary Japanese style circular landscape art print on Somerset Soft White Satin paper, hand pulled by the artist Sherrie-Leigh Jones in her Brighton printmaking studio, is the second print in this series that compliment each other when hung together. The other artworks are Moonlight Through The Trees and Midsummer Moon ~ also available.

    This print was created by assembling a digital collage, made up of photographs taken in Iceland and on travels, before the print studio. The image was printed on a transparency and a mesh screen was coated in light sensitive emulsion, which was left to dry in a dark room. When dry, the image was exposed onto the screen using UV light, with the black parts of the image blocking out the light, meaning that the emulsion didn’t harden on the darker parts of the image. The screen was then washed to remove any unexposed emulsion, leaving the image on the screen to be printed. Ink and graphite powder were mixed with printing medium and a squeegee was hand pulled to push the ink through the mesh on the areas of the exposed image, onto paper to create the finished screenprint.
