The Working Proof: Adam Hancher - Man of the Woods
Man of the Woods is a new print by Adam Hancher. Adam's work is mainly influenced by print, engravings and woodcuts - in particular the artworks of Thomas Bewick and Utagawa Hiroshige. He also takes inspiration from 1920's and 30's graphic design, having specific interest in the composition and limited colour palettes applied to work of that era.
The piece was taken from a body of work that placed emphasis upon different approaches to hunting. The series contrasted the reckless approach of the weekend hunter from out of town to the woodsman who is one with nature. This print depicts the humble woodsman.
