A Surfer and a Ship: Hamish Coventry

A Surfer and a Ship

Using the printing technique of lino cutting, I have produced two different illustrations, one of a surfer and the other of a sailship. I feel that the two images provide a sense of exploration and freedom. It is hard to tell whether they are lost and are being controlled by the power of the wind and waves or rather they have a destination, which they are trying to find.

Razzle Dazzle Ships

‘I have produced a lino cut print, which illustrates a series of dazzle-painted ships, which were used extensively in World War I. With the particular theme of exploration, I was interested in how British marine artist Norman Wilkinson, was influenced by the patterns of insects and animals and how he used particular camouflage techniques to dazzle and mislead the enemy ships.’
