Baile Del Sol
Relief - Woodcut Print
Baile del Sol means Dance of the Sun, a reference to the paper color and the shape. Digital version of original woodcut, image specifications:
Ink: Black/Red with pearl pigment
Paper: Banana bark mustard/ivory (varies)
Process: Paper is very thick with pieces of bark embedded, when damp it embosses beautifully. You can actually "feel" this print in relief.
Image: I usually work to the sounds of noveau flamenco, heavy on the guitar. I like upbeat music without words and feel that in music, as in art, words interfere with the experience. I wanted to capture the sensuous flow and pulsating beat of the flamenco music, an art ancient as the woodcuts. This is the second of the series.
