Title: Gargoyle – Chicago Theater, framed – 2 color Reduction Woodcut Print

Description: The Chicago Theater is a landmark building in the midst of Chicago’s theater district, located on State Street. This gargoyle proudly decorates the front of the building. A reduction woodcut uses one block to print several layers of color on a single print. I carve my design into the block, apply ink, then print the image onto 32 sheets of paper under high pressure by using an etching press. The block is cleaned and more wood is carved away. I apply the second color of ink, which is printed on top of the first image (all 32 sheets). This creates a layered effect. Since the first design has been carved away, the image cannot be reproduced beyond the initial run. "Gargoyle -- Chicago Theater" was printed on French Speckletone Paper manufactured by the French Paper Co., a family-run paper mill in Niles, Michigan. The artwork comes signed and numbered with a one-page description of the process. This is number 32 in an edition of 32. Framed in a bronze-colored, decorative tabletop frame. Artwork Size: 5 x 7 inches ; 12.7 x 17.8 cm Frame Size: 9 x 11 x 1.5 inches ; 23 x 28 x 4 cm. Package weight = 3 lbs. 8 oz.; 1588 g Ships in a cardboard box.
