Joshua Miles

I am a full time artist/printmaker who specialises in hand made limited edition reduction linocuts and monotypes.
I am inspired by the Impressionists’ style of mark-making and Japanese selective rolling techniques. My passion is in capturing the play of light moving over landscapes or found in reflections on water or in objects.

About My Practice

First I gather images from the many walks in my local area.
For the linocut process I select what image inspires me at the time and do my initial sketch in broad felt tip on my lino. I then chisel away my first layer which is always the lightest and with selective rolling I ink up my lino and print my first layer. I then clean up and chisel my second layer. I do only limited editions of 10 prints often in 4 layers.
My other process of monotypes is like painting in ink and building up an image also in several layers but only one is produced.

Tools & Materials

My workstation in my large shop-front window is where I have my glass sheet to mix my inks on, then with small rollers I roll the inks onto my prepared block. Passers-by can watch me work. The other window is where I use my variety of chisels to do my cutting and drawing. I have a large printing press in the middle of my studio.
