Max: “My work is often inspired by the everyday environment around me. I maintain a sketchbook with copious amounts of scrap paper. The limited detail captured with a pencil is just enough for the outlines for the linocuts. In my studio, the sketches are put together to create a composition that I feel represents the movement of the subject, the weather or what I can remember of that time.”
‘The Red list – Willow Tits’
Last year Max Angus was invited by The British Trust of Ornithology (BTO), based at Thetford, to create a new linocut of a Willow tit for a project based on the sixty-seven birds on the BTO’s Red List. The book is called ‘Red Sixty-Seven’. The sixty-seven endangered birds are represented by 67 writers and artists.
The 'Willow Tits' is a featured Lino-cut print in the Summer Printworks Exhibition at the Mill Tye Gallery.
