Appledore Spray, jigsaw reduction woodcut


Appledore Spray, jigsaw reduction woodcut


image size: 12" x 12"
edition of 20
signed and numbered on the front

Inspired by a plein air painting, this print was created using a unique process:
The wood block was cut into pieces that were inked separately, reassembled and run through a press. I did the same thing with "Life on the Edge", also available in this shop.

Next I carved each piece, inked them separately and re-joined them again to print another layer. I repeated this for about 6 layers, until the print was finished.

Removing more and more material from one block to create different color layers is called the "reduction" method.

To see a slideshow of the process, check out the video below.

All the materials used in this print are entirely archival. Each print is hand numbered with impression and edition (ex. 3/20, 4/20, etc.) and signed and titled.

This is an exciting print and would be a great addition to any art collection.

The print does not have a watermark - that is just a graphic on the digital photo.

It will come to you with a firm backing in a protective plastic sleeve.
