This small piece was inspired by the Winter Solstice 2019. One of my favorite yearly markings. The turmeric is held in alcohol and so its conversation with the water based chimney soot pigment produced an intriguing dance of attraction and repulsion.
As the nights stretch out to in their fullest expression, and the sun runs away across the sky, it is a time of year that always reminds me of how important it is stop on the point just before the exhale, light a fire, and ponder the old rite of the sun being reborn.

The original was made using my own handcrafted inks.

They are tumeric & chimney soot.

This open edition Fine Art print is a copy of the original Winter Solstice.

This print has been produced using Epson Ultrachrome HDX Pigment inks on Hahnemuhle phot rag 308g paper. Both are certified to the highest museum standard.

Dimensions given include the cardboard frame, which makes a 5cm border.
