For the four cardinal points, we have on one axis, our demons to the south and our ability to fly and to be untouchable to the north. On the other, we have abundance in the west and destruction in the east, clearing the way for renewal, offering a chance to start over. I float somewhere in the middle

Cardinal points is a series of linocut prints which was loosely inspired by Abba’s “If it wasn’t for the nights” except rather than it being a lost love which was at the root cause, in my case it was all of life’s other struggles.

The prints are 5 ¾” x 4” linocuts printed onto 9” x 12” Canson 98 lb paper using Speedball Professional Supergraphic Black PBK7 ink.
