Susie added people to a lonely bench in this design, as a response to missing friends. At the time of carving the UK was on national lockdown due to Coronavirus, and although friends could meet outside, there was a limit of two people and at a social distance of 2 metres. To be reminded of a time where friends and family could meet freely, these three friends stay naturally close to each other, surrounded by beautiful countryside and framed by protective trees.
This signed artwork is lino printed by hand, on 120gsm printmaking paper, in a dark blue ink. Each print may slightly vary in size as they are trimmed from a bigger sheet after printing, but dimensions are approximately 18cm width x 24cm height. No two prints will be exactly the same as all printing by hand produces natural 'imperfections' that we think makes lino printing, well, just perfect.
