Ian Cox lives near Plymouth in Great Britain. The prints he produces (linocuts) have a deceptive photographic quality while being largely imagined and entirely handcrafted. He is also currently exploring other printmaking techniques, including woodcut and photoengraving.

"I am interested in the energies that flow beneath the surface of these landscapes ... energies that tell the spirit of a place, its time and its history, where complex entanglements swirl in unique and almost incoherent patterns. which sometimes speak of our relationship with the landscape itself ".

 

“I produce small editions of less than twenty prints, spending about a week working on the photographs and drawings before transferring them to one or two lino blocks. Then I take another two, three or four weeks to complete the cut. , which is followed by approximately three days of printing ".

 

“I work with the reduction method, so that the lino is destroyed during the printing process of each color. Since the prints I create are always difficult to produce, there is inherent unpredictability and instability. my approach - a high degree of risk - so it is not uncommon for the process to collapse at the final stage and a project to be abandoned. " But when it works, a voice begins to speak and a story emerges ... "
