'Redwood is a multi process monotype which fuses medium and meaning. The lone woodgrain figure is harmonious with the landscape she inhabits. Her floating form, printed with recycled wood and raw earth pigment connects the human to the elemental in nature.'
What is a 'Monotype'? Monotypes are made by drawing on glass or a plate of smooth metal or stone with a greasy substance such as printer's ink or oil paint. Then the drawing is pressed by hand onto a sheet of absorbent paper or is printed on an etching press.
What is a 'Woodcut'? Woodcut is a relief printing technique. An artist carves an image into the surface of a block of wood—typically with gouges—leaving the printing parts level with the surface while removing the non-printing parts.
