Iconic images of the racing peloton. Original Linocut Prints by Lisa Takahashi
To celebrate the arrival of the Tour of Britain in Bristol, Clifton Contemporary Art is showing a selection of Lisa Takahashi’s dynamic linocut prints depicting racing cyclists. Inspired by modern British artists such as Cyril Power, Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious, Lisa’s work is alive with collective energy and movement, yet elegantly pared down, always focussing on the essential point of inspiration. Lisa uses the multiple-block print technique that requires careful precision, so creating this tangible sense of speed and momentum demands patience.
