For Love (Wood block print No. 1 from only one edition of 10 prints, 76.3cm x 57cm, Dirk Marwig 2016)

I will only make 1 edition of 10 prints from this one. After that I’ll destroy the wood block. It is for sale in my “SHOP” section.

This is a close-up photo of the wood block mid section of “For Love”). Really tedious,messy and boring work but I did it For Love! It does not matter how much work goes into a piece- only the end result matters.

I just made 1 print of this wood cut. I don’t know if I’ll ever sell it. Minimalism at it’s best!

Amaze 2015 (Wood block print, 76.3cm x 48.6cm, Dirk Marwig 2015 )

This “Amaze 2015” wood block print(wood cut) is available in ‘blue’ and ‘red’. It only exists in one(1) edition of 10 prints for each colour. You can buy them in the “SHOP” section of this site. This wood block print is based entirely on the ‘Golden Rectangle’-that’s why it is so ‘pleasing’. The ‘Golden Mean’ is the little square on the upper right.

2 ‘Amaze 2015’ wood block prints -one in red, the other in blue- I then added a red ‘Simplex’ print and put it in the centre. Cool combo! You can stack, rotate and/or shuffle this combo-it always works.

     
How I make a clean woodblock print  (Dirk Marwig 2015)

How I make a clean woodblock print (Dirk Marwig 2015)

Here’s a quick look on how I make a clean wood block print. I took these 6 pics today while printing the the 5th red print(out of 10 red prints) of my ‘Amaze 2015’. I’m bored with ‘red’ so I’ll start with the 10 ‘blue’ prints this afternoon.The roundish thing is used to equally press the paper onto the woodblock which is covered in red ink. The spoon and wedge are used to emboss the lines(rubbing) and the brush is used to spread lead powder-from a pencil- over the impression so that I can see where I have already ‘rubbed’.
I use a 250(g) Stonehenge ‘white’ paper which is heavy and sturdy enough to support my kind of brutal ‘rubbing’ or embossing. -It’s like a 1 1/2 hour workout!
