Faces - Experimenting With Portrait Prints
I've been in a bit of a free float creatively. Occupying myself somewhat obsessively with carving up portrait prints. These are a few of my favorite prints.
I've been using reference photographs and portraits that express emotion. I gravitate towards expressiveness, clarity of the gaze and the light of the eyes. I seek out sharp contrast that lends itself to simple linocut.
I have to say that this current interval of work is a departure for what I'd consider my norms. But I'm going to have faith that this wandering is an unfolding opportunity to see and experience the world and to find joy and pleasure in it.
