Matthew Lintott

Matthew Lintott's practice is a contemporary take on traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking techniques. He prints by hand using very lightweight handmade paper and simple tools such as a baren, spoon or blunt pencil. This allows him to employ tonal variations that could not be achieved by the uniform pressure of a printing press, creating editions by hand.

Core themes explore the mythological narratives of animals within the human subconscious and expressing this liminality within his work, capturing the mystery or spirit of a subject rather than just dutifully replicating its' form.
