‘Birds of freedom’ is how I experience this print from Jim Allen. There is a beautiful silence suggested by the clean white background. The graphic imagery of the birds create feeling of movement and freedom. Jim has used a zinc plate to produce a very expressive brush marks through a highly technical and skilled technique. I have chosen this print as an homage of our beloved chair to showcase his astonishing and laborious artwork. This print reminds me so much of the artist's himself - gentle, tall, neat and quiet with a beautiful soul!
