A workshop on Lino Cut was mentored by Artist Mark Rathinaraj and assisted by Architect Naveen G, between June 11-14, 2019, at the Centre of Applied Research & Education (C.A.R.E School of Architecture) campus, as a part of ‘Summer at C.A.R.E’ Workshop programme. As an artist his works are inspired from nature and his childhood memories.
He was engaged with around 30 students for 4 days, in bringing out Lino cut prints, expressing the locale and context of Tiruchirapalli. The printing process involved seeing, observing & documenting the spaces. This was followed with representing the spaces and impressions, with Lino cut and printing. This technique is known for its textural expressiveness and its 2D visual depth. (p.s – Lino cut & print is a variant of wood cutting technique existent during the initial boom of the printing technology).
