Comments A boldly printed "sosaku hanga" style print. In Paul's words "I have chosen a large size... to give the feeling of the verticality of the bolt of lightning as it crackles between dark clouds and rain to earth. A small edition of only 40--but still employs 14 different printings, including three printings of solid black overlaid to achieve a deep, opaque darkness in the heaviest clouds."
See John Fiorillo's webpage on "Paul Binnie" to learn more about this talented Japanese-trained woodblock artist/printmaker.
