Image: I started a "seed" series about five years ago. I have a two-seeds print and this one. I am planning to continue, off and on. Seeds are amazingly varied and come in all shapes and sizes. But the most amazing thing about them is the diverse ways that mother nature has engineered them to fall from the plant and propagate with help from birds and other critters, to stick on the ground and grow in situ, or to fly with the winds. In any case, they lay dormant waiting for just the right moment when humidity and light are just perfect to birth a tiny little plant. Amazing.
MATTING OR FRAMING
Many collectors often prefer works on paper unmatted and unframed. You will receive your new artwork unmatted/unframed, in an acid-free clear bag well protected against dust and fingerprints and suitable for long-term storage.
Our studio is fully equipped to professionally mat and frame works on paper. If you would prefer to receive your artwork matted, ready to frame, or framed, ready to hang, please choose that option at the time of purchase.
All materials used in matting and framing are acid-free archival quality.
Process: 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. Signed Numbered Wood engraving Limited edition Figures Surrealism 12 to 36 in
