Traditional printmaking has the ability to fully embrace both the world of art and that of craft. For Laine, working in print it is as much a means of production as it is a source of inspiration and preservation. In his recent work, oceans represent unique visual landscapes captured through a rich and colourful history of imagery and narrative. Inspired by these elements, Sea Levels reflects a very personal interpretation of the vast and often mystical power of the ocean. Laine has been exploring and experimenting with different printmaking techniques to convey his own visual rendition of seascapes as somebody who has seldom experienced in first-hand. Inspired by dreams, folklore, and the landscape of the ocean, Sea Levels is woven together as a nautical tapestry.
