Recent Crow Woodcut Prints
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.
