I have been doing a lot of woodcut lately because I don't need a lot of space to create them. The process starts: 1. taking many photos in the city
2. editing my favourite photos and using them to create more complicated, realistic compositions.
3. Then I draw the image on the board with reference to what I created on the computer
4. carve. carve. carve. I make drawing decisions while I draw as well
You can't add back what you have already carved out of the wood so it is important to do a one or two proofs before maki`eeded. Usually needed. Here is an example of pre and post proof.
Now back to the printshop to see if the cuts are actually an improvement or all is destroyed.
Art is the...
great connector of people, places and dreams. It speaks the language of the heart when it is authentic and created from an open and non-judgemental space. It is passionate pursuit of creation with a playful mind.
