Prints of Abstraction

The latest from ROCKET’s art team // woodblock prints

 

This original print was made with a combination of intaglio techniques. Flowing dark shapes, made with a roulette, react to the engraving marks made on the copper plate. The resulting image creates an engaging experience where the chaotic marks of the engraving are settled by the unity and balance provided by the roulette and the white shapes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two relief woodblocks were used to explore relationships between color, larger movements of shape, and mark making techniques. The eye is engaged through the repetition of carving marks on this experimental print.
