Self Recognition

Monochrome lino print in Cranfield Caligo Prussian blue oil-based ink on A5 Kent paper by Toby Tremlett @harshdarklines

This print is inspired by identity development during childhood and the feeling of disassociation with the self.
The artist says, 
"I'm trying to capture the really intense feeling I had when I was a kid of being identified with myself. So like the feeling of going from an untethered consciousness that is happy to identify with a character in a book, with anything it likes in dreams etc... To being tied to one unfree child with a specific name who conjures up a specific image to the people around them.
So the idea in the print is the mirror child having really determinate features and the child outside of it having more abstract borders and melting into the scene a bit."
