Woodcut Original Art Wood Engraving Print Hydrophyte Figures Willow Water Loving Tree of Life
2001 Wood Engraving

Image: Obviously, a willow inspired this image. I wanted to capture the angst with which water loving plants (hydrophytes) reach for the water with root and limb, heart and soul.
Woodcuts and wood engravings 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.
All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil by the artist.
