Woodcuts
The culmination of two semesters of traditional printmaking
To sum up my relationship with the wonderful medium of woodcut, allow me to quote from an essay by Lynd Ward:

"But more important than all this is the undeniable fact that working with a woodblock takes on the aspects of a struggle between antagonists. The wood is reluctant, the artist determined, and it is reasonable to suggest that that battle of wills brings about a result quite different from other media, in which the hand of the artist moves brush or crayon freely over the working surface. With wood, every movement of the tool involves overcoming resistence and demands the use of a certain amount of sheer physical force. Every block and every subject is a new challenge. The result is an emotional involvement between man and material that, enduring over the years, somehow takes the character of an addiction, or a love affair, or something similarly irrational. At any rate, there is no known cure."
