HAMARTIA
Hand-drawn, cut, and printed Linoprint
47 x 64 CM (Edition of 17)
Torn-edged Fabriano Rosaspina Bianco paper

The name Hamartia is often used to describe the error of judgement of a protagonist in literature. This piece in particular is loosely inspired by Desdemona's final scene in William Shakespeare's Othello, and the title refers to Othello's realisation of his error of judgement (or anagnorisis).
Drawn and cut over the Christmas period in Yorkshire, and printed in January in London.

This is the first full-sized linoprint by Benjamin Murphy since 2015.
