Hope & Despair

Reduction Linoprint

Based on Hokusai’s ‘Great Wave’ – which is synonymous with both the power and beauty of the ocean and the strength of the people who brave it – the print depicts the perilous flight of migrants in their bid to reach a new world. Whether migration is for religious, war or economic reasons, migrants throughout time have risked everything to seek refuge overseas. Brave souls indeed.
