The image Forest Debris-Cotter River and much of my recent work employs a fine woodcutting technique, which has grown out of research into the traditions and techniques of nineteenth century woodcutting, engraving and etching. I use horizontal and linear cutting to create a rhythmic density which is further enhanced by the grain of the woodblock itself. The technique allows the images to emulate a sense of cutting into and through a slice of the landscape.
