Andrew Sharman, A Dream of Sheep, linocut 30x19cm, 2020

I first discovered the prints of Andrew Sharman via my subscription to the British printmaking magazine pressing matters. I was immediately struck by how he takes landscape imagery and re-imagines it into a simplified (or stylized) design that still encompasses a vast amount of information.

His choice to keep to a very reduced colour palette I find enticing and the use of multiple overlaid shaped blocks is very effective.
