About

Gold pigment on black paper block print, nude art, framed, signed by the artist. Edition of 20. Please allow up to two weeks for individual production and framing. "I have been trying to find a way in which the process of creating itself reveals what is hidden on subconscious level, answers essential questions about my existence. What a revelation it was when I tried block printing on black paper for the first time. The technique gives me that sharp line that might only be achieved by carving. The process of leading a chisel reminds me of leading a sword. I am cutting away everything that is excessive, and simplifying the subject down to a symbol, a character. It is more like sculpting than drawing or painting: Sculpture on paper. Even though there is no tonal gradation, printing with bright gold-ish paint on black paper gives some form to the body. It is like shining light into dark void, bringing to life the creatures inside." M.T.
