The Crossing

Two plate woodcut

This hand-burnished woodcut captures the essence of many journeys made sailing across the Channel for summer holidays; just the sea and the sky, yet always fascinating to watch the ever changing light reflected off the waves and the froth as they roll and break. Above, a cloudless sky gives way to the infinite. The scene is symbolic of that seen on any journey across any sea in the world. It is a time for reflection on past journeys and contemplation, excitement or trepidation of those to come.
