Collection: Swing'incision

The blend of being an artist and a dancer was the creative inspiration to produce this series of linocut prints. The result is a fusion of these two passions, creating an expression of energy, of simple and dynamic shapes and bold images; ready to fire up the viewer’s imagination.

This series introduces different styles of Swing dance which is a family of dances that expanded with the Swing style of Jazz music in the 1920s-1940s, with the roots of each dance predating the popular “Swing Era”. The Swing music and dances of that age are the message, the medium is the printmaking  technique of Linocut where the design is incised in to the linoleum surface with the uncarved areas representing an image of the final piece hand-printed on the paper. Different styles of dancing produce different types of energy that are reflected in the lines and different styles of cutting.
