‘Pulling the wool over his eyes’


For this exhibition, Sue Shields has produced a series of lino cuts based on rhymes and sayings with a wool theme.  Shown here is a lino cut entitled ‘Pulling the wool over his eyes’ – the wool theme is reinforced by presenting the print in woollen frames.


Further lino cuts (also part of this exhibition) explore both the idiom ‘A wolf in sheep’s clothing’ and the nursery rhyme ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’.
