“CASTLE” contrasts the lush insides of the castle wall with the desolate dunes outside the castle wall.
Hand-printed copy on somerset book ivory heavyweight paper
8x10, 2017, Paul Roden
This original woodcut print is drawn, carved and printed entirely by hand. I draw directly onto ¾” birch plywood, then carve the negative space around the lines of the drawing using sharp, hand-held knives and chisels. Ink is rolled onto the carved block and printed onto paper through a press. Every color in the print is also printed from a hand-carved block of wood.
