‘The Tree I Fell Out Of’ and other prints.
Five associated prints, all linocuts from the last two years. Each has a botanical reference to a place and something witnessed, each has its own colour – The pattern of a palm and window, the willow tree I fell out of, my lockdown walk, a water pattern and winter willow tree.
I would like these prints to be shown as a group – All are framed tight in white frames so they should work as a collage of coloured images, almost like patterned paper samples. Arranged closely – 3cm between frames but not quite aligned (as in image)

Andrew Carter Lives and works in London. He is married to the artist Helen Ireland. They have two children. He studied at Fine Art Painting at Central St Martins and MA Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art. He currently works from his studio in East Dulwich at Artichoke Print Workshop in Brixton. He teaches painting, drawing and printmaking alongside developing his own work as an artist.
At the beginning of the summer I made a quick, spontaneous ink drawing onto lino exploring the qualities of throwing, dripping and splashing. I have subsequently spent two months carefully cutting and transcribing the marks ready for a relief print. The whole process has been revealing and also satisfying to arrive back at the starting point.
