This is an original limited edition 3-color multi block linocut woodblock print of a succulent, Haworthia truncata, that has been designed, carved and hand pulled by me, the artist. This print is limited to only 15 individual prints and will never be printed again. Each print is numbered and signed.
This is a handmade original multi-block linocut print, not a digital, giclee print, which is a reproduction...each piece is an original handmade piece of art.
Haworthia truncata is first in a series of "plant friend prints" that I'm creating one by one; each inspired by photos sent to me by friends and followers of their favorite plants. First, I draw an original illustration, my own interpretation, of the submitted image or images. Then, I hand carve my illustration into a linocut block print (or several if it's a multi-color multi-block print), then print each individual print by hand (no printing press) using oil based relief ink for longevity. These are very limited series prints,
As an artist, I'm not interested in perfection, but rather expression. A lot of elbow grease goes into each individually made piece, and you'll find slight variations on all of them, from a few flicks of ink here and there, to slight differences in print registration. These slight variations give each print their own unique visual texture that I find interesting.
