Bewick's Fox

Patrick Thomas talks to Outline Editions about his Bewick-inspired prints including Foxes and Hound (Inverted).

Photographs from Studio LaVista, Barcelona here.

"In all of these pieces I’m taking Bewick’s image and reinventing it, paying homage to it. The final image in the series is the big wood cutting. It’s the first wood cut I’ve done in about twenty years. I hand cut it into a bit of beech over the course of about ten days. I loved the idea of getting as close as possible to Bewick’s own experience of mark making."
