Linocut, 2012, 6 color 7x5" on 11x8.5 paper.Edition of 20 and 3 Artist proofs. without frame or mat

A six color reduction linocut print of the Detroit Salt Mine.

In a reduction print the artist develops all colors from the same block. For each color pass the artist removes more material from the block. Each color is printed on top of the previous. The artist must print the entire edition as he or she works, because the printable area of the single block is reduced with each pass.
