'Blue Orchid', 2016 5 colour reduction linocut Printed on Fabriano Tiepolo 19 x 19cm image size, 21 x 19cm paper size Edition of 20 Signed and dated on front Hand printed by Christina Vincent
'My first visit to NYC was at the end of 2015. I found it to be filled with lots of contrasts but was mostly drawn to the lush things; subway mosaics, the ornate tea sets and decadent flower arrangements at The Inn at Irving Place in the East Village, where we were staying. Many hours were spent looking at art in galleries and early 20th Century decorative arts objects in museums. Lots of jazz was heard in clubs. All of the sounds, styles, rich colours and embellishments of the decadent jazz era stayed with me when I came home.
Blue Orchid was initially created to be the artwork for Tom Vincent's Blues in America album but the print ended up being more like a personal memento to share.
The print is a complex 5 colour reduction print. Gold is the final colour and is really beautiful when catching the light.'
