Overlook: Print by Tugboat Printshop from Two Years Carving Intricate Woodcut.
“Introducing the “OVERLOOK” woodcut! We’re nearly finished with the key block drawing (we’ve been working on & off for 2 years on this drawing!) and finally feel that the moment is right to start talking about this new work in progress.In “OVERLOOK“, a dense forest huddles tight, with groves expanding outwards, upwards, growing ever further away. The trees move with the motion of a wind, or not; some are rigid & straight, some rustling & reaching. At the middle of the print, the treeline dips down and spreads up and out into a great stretch of rolling fields and forests. Groves suggestively march across the earth, nomadic, in packs made cloudlike by the abstraction of distance. In the fields, we see mankind’s organized presence.”
“OVERLOOK” will be a color woodcut, printed from at least 3 color blocks and a key, final size to be roughly 28″ x 46″(bleed).
