“Waterfall” handmade original color woodcut
”Waterfall” is a majestic natural scene—the viewer looks down on the river that cascades into the towering waterfall. Simultaneously, the scale invites you behind the waterfall and into the wading pool below...it is like super nice in there.
Drawn and carved during artist Paul Roden’s ‘year of living dangerously,‘ ”Waterfall” has the best trademarks from this era of work—precise, tightly stylized lines, broad swaths of bold process color, and a quiet yearning for the joy of solitude.
8”x10” on ivory Somerset book heavyweight, numbered edition, 2017. Four blocks—yellow, red, blue, and black—print in layers to also create orange, green, purple and brown, giving the final image the full range of color from the Crayola 8 pack of our youth.
