An original reduction linocut showing Stockholm's street Tegnérgatan, the traffic lights and dramatic shadows on the rocks.
The print is made by carving and printing the same linoleum block twice. For the first layer, I carve away what I want to leave white, then print in green. Then I carve away what I want to leave green, and print in black. The process is irreversible, which is why a reduction print is also called a suicide print.
The print has been part of the exhibition Svenska grafik - 30 år (30 years of Swedish Printmaking) in 2015 in Galleri Sjöhästen in Lidingö, Sweden.
