This beautiful church is one that I drive past on a regular basis. I find it to be a rather beautiful building, and a beautiful link back to the past in Mount Cotton.
This Congregation was formed in 1875 by the German Free Settlers in the area. The current church building was opened in 1951, about 5km north of the old church. The cemetery, which was beside the earlier church building, is still in use.
St Paul’s Lutheran Church stands opposite the Mt Cotton State School, at the junction of Mt Cotton and Seaview Roads, about 3km south of Sirromet Winery.m
Origins of Linocut
Although linoleum is a floor covering that dates to the 1860s, the linocut printing technique was used first by the artists of Die Brücke in Germany between 1905 and 1913, where it had been similarly used for wallpaper printing.
A Linocut is a relief print (like a woodcut), the image is carved from a block of Linoleum. Areas are carved or cut away from the block, what remains will print when the inked roller is passed over the top of the block and paper is laid on the block to take an impression by hand or through a press.
All my Linocuts are hand printed on handmade Japanese Washi paper which for centuries has been used for block printmaking. It is thin enough for hand printing yet surprisingly strong and quite beautiful, also acid free and archival.
The majority of my Linocuts are custom coloured, I mix my own ink colours. I use Sakura Ink and have an artist’s proof print as my guide for the colours and tones that I will apply to a print in the same edition, there may be slight variations as my colour mixing is ‘painterly’ therefore each print in an edition is an individual.
