Woodcuts —occasionally known as xylography—is a relief printing artistic technique in printmaking where an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level with the surface while the non-printing parts are removed, typically with gouges. The areas to show ‘white’ are cut away with a knife or chisel, leaving the characters or image to show in ‘black’ at the original surface level. The block is cut along the grain of the wood (unlike wood engraving where the block is cut in the end-grain). The surface is covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered roller (brayer), leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas.

Offset – North Devon Art – #printmaking

I will be exhibiting at least three new prints at an exhibition called, ‘Offset‘. Offset is an exhibition of prints by North Devon Artists at West Buckland School which starts March 5th.

Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (called “fountain solution”), keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

“I keep thinking about George Braque who learnt artificial wood graining from his time as a decorator; the story goes that he taught Picasso and these painted renderings of wood surface became a staple of cubism.” Read more…
It is going to  be ‘fun’ to present a body of new prints, supported by a few images, drawings I did from  nearly 40 years ago. Some of the earlier drawings etc. are very similar to what is still being produced today. It might be interesting to see the chronological journey – maybe the viewer will say “I can do better than that”. I was tempted do a series of figures – I wanted to make them more than just ‘people studies’. I’m bored with ‘quick click’ ‘n ‘quick fix’ –  (modus operandi – these new prints will be the real statement and the paintings a re-hash of old tricks – shhh!).

One of the highlights of 2011 was visiting The Eden Project in Cornwall (UK). It is important that places like this exists to show us how fragile our environment is.

The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in Cornwall in the United Kingdom, including the world’s largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 2 kilometres (1.25 mi) from the town of St Blazey and 5 kilometres (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall.

The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment.
