New Additions: Matt Brown Color Woodcuts

NEW ADDITIONS banner

NEW ADDITIONSContemporary printmaker Matt Brown dropped off more prints at The Old Print Gallery last week, and we are very excited by his new work. Brown works in the traditional Japanese hanga method to create his stunning color landscapes- cutting and inking a different block for each color used in his prints.

“I love the process of making these prints: the way pictorial simplicity is encouraged, the way an image is separated into parts and put back together, the way the translucent colors blend and juxtapose, the way the wood interacts with the paper.”- Matt Brown
