By transforming utilitarian objects or familiar scenes into prints, Sophia Saunders' artwork brings them out of the mundane and gives them a colour, a shape, an individuality.
The process of printmaking is multifaceted; an image is constantly shifting, revealing itself. After carving out the negative space, what is left is the reverse image. By adding colour, the mood of the print is dictated and only once it is pressed does the image come to life.
Within each print the imperfections take on unique characteristics that add a human element to an otherwise mechanical process. Each original linocut print has been carved by hand and pressed by Sophia Saunders.
