Relief Prints

The surface is raised, and the ink is applied to the surface of the matrix that juts out after being carved by the artist.  Whether that matrix is a linoleum block, a woodblock, a piece of styrofoam, slate, or cardboard, it's relief printmaking.  And while many artists will refine their technique to levels of excellence that boggle the mind, relief can be used to obtain so many different artistic effects, that it can hardly be summed up.  This selection presents prints that are both monochromatic and multi-colored, and go from the crudely carved and expressive, to the extremely fine and realistic, and everything in between.
