Andrea is currently working on BEINGreen, a series of striking interpretations of the forest.
The medium, Reduction Linocut, is a printmaking technique in which a multicoloured print is made with the use of a single block. Through a series of progressive cuttings, inkings, and printings, the image slowly emerges while the actual block is destroyed. A reduction linocut can never be reprinted.
The medium is a metaphor. We carve away at our planet and once gone it cannot be recreated.
Visit Andrea at the Burr House Gallery and Tea Room to see live demonstrations. The Burr House Gallery and Tea room is located at 530 Carrville Rd in Richmond Hill.
