Wood and Mountain

I’m playing with wood blocks which are mountains, superimposing and juxtaposing them, varying the inks from dark to pale for atmospheric perspective. It’s a simple game, re-creating the world, perhaps seen from above. Watching grain become geology, seeing tree-growth become strata of minerals, laid down over time, tilted, compressed.

I’m playing with images of mountains. They are printed from wood blocks, superimposed, lain side by side, juxtaposed, and in varying tones as in atmospheric perspective. Simple, just playing, creating landscapes.

Wood grain is apparent and I’m also thinking of strata of rocks, layers of minerals lain down over time as the mountains grew.
