“Regeneration” – Waratahs Linocut…Linoprint

\'Regeneration\' Linocut - Waratahs

I finally completed the ‘Waratahs’ linocut today. I have called it “Regeneration”. After the destruction that occurs in bushfires the waratah ‘regenerates’ from a ‘lignotuber’ which is a type of starchy or woody swelling found partly or fully on underground stems – like a life support system.

In this print the outside leaves that are destroyed regenerate into the magnificent waratah flowers of the central panel. Thus after destruction and when there seems to be no hope of regeneration something found below the surface holds the key for rebirth.
