Maze
Woodcut
30" x 20"
Edition 100

Block: Baltic Birch
Ink: Black
Paper: Daphne, a meaty beautiful hand-made paper made in Nepal
Process: Straight forward woodcut. Used very small chisels to achieve detail, down to 1mm.

Image: A somewhat surrealistic interpretation of "Se hace camino al andar," (translates to: we make the path as we walk). The maze of life forces us to both build a path and let loose of the past while hanging on to things we learn, always looking ahead and hopefully moving forward. Sounds like a maze to me.

Process: Woodcuts are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.
