Weaving can produce fabric with striking geometric forms. Viewed up close, the geometric grid lines in this print dominate; viewed from afar, the diagonal lines take precedent.
This print was born from my desire to explore complex weaving drafts. I carved this particular pattern because my loom is incapable of weaving a twill pattern this complex. I added a second color to distinguish the warp and weft threads and to make the diagonal pattern pop.
This work is printed using two different carved linoleum blocks, the first inked up in white, the second inked up in black; both inks are oil-based. The paper is textured and tan, and may have one edge that is cleanly cut; the remaining three edges will be either a torn edge or the natural deckle edge. Because each print is hand-pulled, there will be slight variations between prints.
