Item Description

Own this lovely woodcut print by renowned printmaker Tom Killion.  Titled "Pt. Reyes  from McClures Beach" this unframed piece measures 10'' high by 13'' wide including the border around the image. It is printed on white with indigo blue ink.  

Tom Killion's luminous wood and lino-cut prints of the California coast spring from a combination of the artist's deeply rooted sense of place and his internalization of the aesthetics of the traditional Japanese landscape print.

"My art springs from a love for the natural world, the bones of the land, the skin and fur of plants and trees. But it is the challenge of the printmaking process, its layers of reversal and carving, its always surprising results, that keep me at it year after year, image after image. I am just beginning to understand the power of visual communication, its topography and patterns that flow in the living river of time, outside the confines of word-structured thought."
