Caroline Hick. RISE: River of Tears & Like a Phoenix, lino print pair, 2017

The image of Grenfell stands as a reminder of the death of a system that should be here to serve its people. We should be very sad for our society where our health and welfare are sold to the highest bidder, angry with a system that doesn’t support the most vulnerable and united in a hope that we can be part of the change that needs to happen.

This pair of prints is my way of trying to be part of that change. From a feeling of deep sadness for so many lives needlessly lost depicted in the first print (River of Tears) comes a call to action to make those lives lost count (Like a Phoenix).

A limited edition of 100 pairs of linoprints titled: RISE: River Of Tears and RISE: Like A Phoenix. Hand printed on Awagami Japanese paper. 52cm x 43cm. Sold unframed. £80 per pair.

Rise – A print edition for Grenfell

We are living in extraordinary times! The image of Grenfell stands as a reminder of the death of a system that should be here to serve its people. We should be very sad for our society where our health and welfare are sold to the highest bidder, angry with a system that doesn’t support the most vulnerable and united in a hope that we can be part of the change that needs to happen.

 

A few years ago I chose to give up work to look after my lovely Mum who has Alzheimer’s. We came to live in Meanwood to be close to other members of our family. We are lucky – we are a close family. When I saw and read the news about Grenfell, I just couldn’t stop thinking about all those other families, who have been wiped out and devastated by a tragedy that could have been prevented.

This pair of prints is my way of trying to be part of an increasing number of people who want change to happen and justice to be seen to be done.
