The Shag, is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.

Cormorants, locally known as “Shags”, can often be seen along the coast of southern Tasmania where I live – flying high above the water and diving for fish. Afterwards, they find a sunny spot on a rock or jetty to dry their wings in the characteristic stance depicted in this artwork.
