The Working Proof: Antje Drescher - Untitled

We released Antje Drescher's very lovely Untitled linocut print yesterday. I love the texture the linocut gives each piece - as Antje said in her interview: "The advantage of the linocut technique lies within the contrast it creates between the white spaces of snow and the darkness of the tree trunks. It intensifies and focuses on the tension-filled situation between the animals." The limited use of color adds to that tension, as well. Antje's print supports Doctors Without Borders.
