Ouseburn arches

An original reduction linocut print of the Ouseburn bridges in Newcastle upon Tyne.


SKU: Ouseburn arches Category:

This is a reduction lino print of the bridges over the Ouseburn valley in Newcastle upon Tyne. It's a vibrant area full of traditional pubs and artists' studios. The print features the Byker road, rail and metro bridges, seen from beside the burn below.

A reduction lino print is made by cutting and printing a lino block, then cutting more into that same lino block and printing, then cutting again into the same block, and so on. For this Ouseburn print I cut and printed 3 layers from the same block, hence the 3 different colours in each print. The reduction technique means that you can't go back a layer, or reprint new editions.

I have made 2 versions of this print. One in orange and green, and a second in blue, purple and pink. They are limited editions of just 5 and 6 prints respectively, although I have only 1 of each print currently in stock.
The original prints are 7x5" in size and are sold unframed, although they fit well in a 12x10" frame, should you want to frame them yourself. Each print is named (Ouseburn arches i or ii), numbered and signed.
