CLAIRE ZINN – To live with caution not fear III

The To Live with Caution not with Fear Series was inspired by the theme of vanitas (showing the symbolic transience of life). The works feature tangled plants bordering imagined landscapes that are at once threatening and beautifying the life of the intrepid paddling figure. Each layer of colour is cut from the same linoleum matrix starting with the carving and printing of the lightest colour and ending with the darkest. This technique mirrors the theme of the works in that once the subsequent layer is carved it is permanently changed. Similarly if the registration is off or the paper is damaged you cannot replace it.  – Claire Zinn
