"Monstera Deliciosa" 2020
An original linocut artwork by Fiona Watson.
From a limited edition of 20 prints.
Also known as the Swiss cheese plant this tropical flowering plant is native to southern Mexico. They make gorgeous indoor plants with their bold statement leaves, but they can also grow very large in jungles, being climbers.
The holes in their leaves allow them to spread out further without using energy to grow the extra leaf areas! It also allows tropical downpours to pass through and not damage the plant. Clever huh?
A block this size takes approximately 30-40 hours to draw and carve, and then another 3 hours or so to print the edition by hand - no press involved! :)
Paper size - 50cm x 65cm
Image size - 30cm x 45cm
