Weposque I Oak Bluff
10 cm x 15 cm
Weposque-‘At the end of the rocks’ is a linocut created in response to a ‘state of being’ and impressions gathered during time spend observing nature in Martha’s Vineyard.
Metaphorically speaking I had come up against the end of my rocks or cliffs, windswept and to mother earths elements and ocean exposed, washed and eroded by life.
Like at the end of one road, where remains to be seen the unknown new path, which will yet undulate and unfold in its unknown patterns. While the silent moments in the midst of a storm already hold the anticipation for a change in weather.
The relief is a playful discovery of marks, creating a reflection of an inner environment, movement and texture.
One after another, accenting like in life, the composition and composing of the whole, the marks are guided by conscious gesture, and informed by the essence of that what they capture and embody.
The Linolium relief created in Oak Bluff, Marthas Vineyard is in responde to experiencing the cliffs at Aquinnah.
It is a remembering and playful discovery of marks. One after another. Like in life the composition and composing of the whole. The marks in gesture, like the essence of that what it captures and embodies.
Oak Bluff I worked on during the Pandemic and is a return to the connection with carved presence, allowing the abstracted mark and tools through guided gesture to capture and create the dynamics of an observed and imagined natural landscape.
