A Poplar Place

2011 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

The woodcut depicts a stand of poplar trees we commonly see here in Michigan, or in many other parts in the Northern Hemisphere. At times, the process of "working the plate" are unknown to the observer of the finished print. This relief has been made by the use of a power router, die grinder, and a wide selection of chisels and hand tools. The key plate is Birch plywood, is painted in the manner of what I would like to have as a finished print. Due to time and finances related to making color plates, the black and white prints may be "hand colored" at a later date. I am also considering incorporating the prints into wood frames to be used as interior dividers. Currently there are only five prints (or proofs) pulled from this woodcut "key plate". This work is for sale, I may be contacted by phone at (231) 557-3404.
