“At a time when the art world seems to be full of artists attempting to shock and denigrate, Klein’s intimate, life affirming work comes as a welcome breath of fresh air. Her works convey a unique pleasure in the everyday moments that make life special”.
Vincent Eames, Eames Fine Art
Linocut prints are a form of relief printing. The image is created by cutting an image into the surface of a linoleum block using fine steel gouges. The areas of the block not intended to take the printing ink are cut away, leaving the design on the uncut surface. This is then inked up and when paper is laid on top of the lino image and put through a press the image is transferred.
