TITLE Mornington Beachside Suburbia
MEDIUM HAND-COLORED LINOCUT
SIZE 65cm x 85cm
Take a walk on Mornington’s Pier and you can see this amazing seaside view. It never gets old and is always a place of gratitude for me.
Especially during Covid 19 lockdown when I made this linocut. The entire lockdown was spent carving this out of a large piece of Lino.
The print was done on a printing press by hand and then hand coloured with a soft palette of watercolours. When you love a place as much as I do it will shine through on what you are creating.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I began my artistic journey completing a Diploma of Visual Art at Chisholm, Frankston. Not long after that I completed a BA in Fine Art and Visual Culture. The education was invaluable to my knowledge of the arts and my practice. I am a local to the area and my artwork focuses on my immediate surroundings. The Australian Suburbia is my main subject matter and I my instagram is titled the QUEEN OF SUBURBIA @billynye_art.
