12×12″ two-color reduction linocut. The process involves cutting all the areas of the block you want to remain white first, printing the first color (usually the lightest), and then cutting away everything you want to remain that first color and printing again. I find it a challenging thought process… it is mostly all logic and understanding color. The challenge is that in my paintings I am constantly working back and forth with color and making constant changes. In this print though, once an area is cut away, you can never get it back. Further, after the first color is printed and you start cutting away for the second color, you can never make more of the first run of prints. The block is destroyed in the process of cutting.
