Linocuts

“Linocuts lend themselves to blocky, sharp-edged images. The surface comprises thick layers of color. The artist draws the image and recuts the linoleum block for each color; a master printer transfers each color of the image to paper on a press. When a linocut edition is complete, very little of the linoleum block remains. The linoleum block begins to break down and crack after printing about 100 images.”
