Because printmakers reproduce, I have a lot of linocuts. Yes, they are for sale!
I can't seem to stop creating new ones! However, all my editions are extremely limited - usually no more than 10 in a series (or 6 good ones out of a possible 10 or 12 - which is not uncommon since maybe I failed to register the block and paper right, or did not ink the block enough, or inked it too much, or I spill ink, or whatever. So, because I don't really need all of them, yes, they are for sale. I always keep one for myself and if I think my children might like one for posterity, I hang on to an extra or two. No two are exactly alike! That's the beauty of handprinting and the printing process in general. Each one is unique and is numbered and signed in pencil.
Thank you very much for looking!
THE REDUCTIVE LINOCUT
Carving one linoleum block for all layers of color
until, gradually, the final image emerges.
Cick on the above thumbnails to read about the process.
The below linocut editions are sold out but are available as quality reproductions upon request.
Weathered Fence, 2017, 12" x 9" , Edition: 7
More than one-hundred linocuts carved by yours truly over the decades line bookshelves, most inspired by nature near-by, by an inner yearning, by photos I've taken between the door and the gate, by powerful images I've come across like one that inspired the one to the right - a delicate balance between humanity and our planet. Once inspired, the process begins with drawing on the block, then carving, inking and finally pulling the handprinted sheet from the linoleum surface. That's the most exciting part. The "reveal"!
Cultivate (Boeger Winery), 2017, 10" x 8"
