This original linocut print was inspired by a visit to the Stones of Stenness on Orkney where, in the midst of winds and rain, I witnessed sheep cowering in the shadow of the stones to escape the weather.

 

The Stones of Stenness, along with the nearby Ring of Brodgar, form part of a powerful ritualistic landscape on Orkney, situated on an isthmus between the lochs of Stenness and Harray. 

 

My print captures the starkness of one of these stones; the background evoking the many weather variations experienced on Orkney and deliberately stylised in the manner of early textile weaving patterns.
