Willie Rodger
A Flight of Angels
Linocut, 50 x 58 cm
Reg. No: L241
Willie Rodger was born in Kirkintilloch in 1930 and graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1954. Most of his work is done in woodcut prints, or linocut prints like this one. Carving a sheet of lino, the artist takes away all the areas he does not want to print, then the lino is inked up and printed onto paper. This technique gives heavy even blocks of colour with sharp edges - good for bold, graphic designs like this.
