Sunflower for Winter
The sunflower is a symbol of Ukraine. This abstract composition references the coming together of people in the face of barriers and differences. It represents hope, community and solidarity for all those affected by war and conflict.
Eight months after this war started, it's awful to see it rumbling on into winter. This new edition of my sunflower print recognises how tough things continue to be for people in, and displaced from, Ukraine.
Printmaking has always been important in times like these. Traditionally, it has supported the spread of information and the galvanising of political movements. In this 21st century war of digital disinformation, I am using it to support the humanitarian aid effort and to look forward to better days.
This is an original, open edition, gold coloured linocut print in colourfast professional inks on a heavyweight 300g lightfast paper. It is 20 x 20cm and supplied unframed.
