Recent Crow Woodcut Prints



Above are three of eight recent prints (EV or Edition Verite - meaning I used the same 9x12 woodblock for all 8 prints but experimented with a different technique when printing each one). These were done in a recent woodblock cutting class at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley.  Top two prints are examples of Chine Colle, using different Japanese kozo papers.  Prints are 11" x 15." Prints 4/8, 7/8 and 8/8 are variations on the black ink theme (as in 3/8 above).   Print 5/8 is another version of Chine Colle, seen above in print 2/8, and print 6/8 was given to my very knowledgeable Kala teacher Claire Kessler-Bradner.  There is no intentional symbolism related to the 7 circles behind the Crow, although I could make something up if provoked.
