Orca is an online print exhibition consisting of 22 linocut prints by Christopher Hill. Oceans cover 70% of earths surface and orcas can be found in every ocean. Christopher explores how the movement and power of orcas and the ocean can be represented. He uses a relief print making technique to create bold striking images when only using black ink on paper. Repeated patterns have been suitably used to reflect the repetitive nature of oceans tides and waves. The moon is also depicted and links to the ocean due to its impact of ocean tides. The moon and waves have been widely used in Japanese Ukiyo-e prints and given inspiration for many tattoo designs. Influences of the way waves haves been represented in Ukiyo-e prints can be seen in Christophers’ work.
Structured repetitive patterns and a free flowing expression can both be seen in his work. The entire process from original idea to the final print was completed by Christopher. Each print is available for purchase.
The human population is growing more aware of the influence we have on other species habitats. Focus on conservation and reducing the impact on the natural world can be seen in individuals and governments actions. With compassionate action we can help decrease the negative impacts of our behaviour. This exhibition hopes to celebrate the orca, oceans and this life giving planet.
