OPEN – JOURNEY – Ruth Oaks 02 – Southampton City Art Gallery

Ruth Oaks 

The Traveller 


The landscape is of the Valley of Rocks, North Devon, and the figure comes from William Blake’s illustration ‘The Traveller hasteth in the evening’.  I have often thought of this while making my way through the Valley of Rocks to Lee Abbey.

This is a linocut printed from four blocks: the first three printed in transparent yellow, red and blue, and a final key block printed over in dark blue.
