Statement

创作声明

 

I like to work directly onto the block having refined my designs mentally. My ideas range widely to include landscape and socio-political comment. I often have several blocks in progress and have developed rapid engraving techniques. I listen to stories while I work, which keeps me focused. Recently, I have been making large wood engraving collages.

我喜欢在脑海中构思我的设计,然后后直接在木块上创作。我的题材范围很广,包括风景和社会政治评论。我经常有好几块正在进行中的作品,并已发展出快速雕刻的技术。我一边工作一边听故事,这样可以让我集中精力。最近,我一直在制作大型木刻口木刻拼贴画。
