If You Fly, If You Drive (diptych) Prints, 1973
Limited Edition Print
Variant woodcut printmaking technique where linoleum sheet is used to act as the relief surface. The surface is then cut into a V-shaped gouge or chisel design so the raised areas represent a mirror image(reversal) to show printed parts. A roller is used to link the sheet which is then impressed to fabric or paper. A press or hand can be used to do the actual printing.
Printmaking technique belonging to Intaglio family, where an image is skillfully incised to a plate using a hard pointed object or "needle" of a sharp diamond or metal point. Copper was traditionally the plate but nowadays, zinc, plexiglas or acetate are commonly used. Like in etching, drypoint is a little bit easier for a drawing artist to master compared to engraving as the needle technique is closer to the use of a pencil than the burin in engraving.
