Original Woodcut Print Art LE Earthtone Woodblock Male Man Figures Classic Model Pose Fusion
20" x 16"
Ink: Umber/sienna mixes 2 colors
Paper: Stonehenge cream
Process: Reduction, background cut to match the grain of the wood
Image: This could be two facets of the same man or any relationship between two men. I don't know what inspired the image, I just cut the wood.
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.
All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil. See my biography page for details about the artist.
