Turning Tide, jigsaw reduction woodblock print
edition of 30
signed and numbered on the front
Inspired by a plein air painting, this print was created using a unique process:
The wood block was cut into pieces that were inked separately, reassembled and run through a press. I did the same thing with "Sand Pools", "Green Wave", "House on Ocean Point", "Maine Wave", "Private Wave", and "Appledore Spray", also available in this shop.
Next I carved each piece, inked them separately and re-joined them again to print another layer. I repeated this for about 6 layers, until the print was finished.
Removing more and more material from one block to create different color layers is called the "reduction" method.
All the materials used in this print are entirely archival. Each print is hand numbered with impression and edition (ex. 3/30, 4/30, etc.) and signed and titled.
The unframed print comes in a clear bag, backed by an acid-free board.
This is an exciting print and would be a great addition to any art collection.
The print does not have a watermark - that is just a graphic on the digital photo.
