Meredith Nemirov, a unique artist who, since June of 2012 has been working on something unique and different in itself;
Twelve Views of the Lone Cone Mountain from Woodblock Prints.
Woodcut prints? And what are those? I asked this question myself at first. And the art of woodblock printing is so interesting I think it deserves an explanation in itself.
So basically this ancient art was literally how texts, books and documents were printed predominantly in Asia for centuries. First a woodblock “stamp” was created, then ink applied, then rubbing, or pressing was performed for desired text transfer. Cool right?
But Meredith Nemirov is not printing ancient books and texts she is implementing the art of Japanese woodblock printmaking to create her Twelve Views of Lone Cone Mountain Series.
Twelve Views of the Lone Cone, is a series of prints executed from drawings and paintings made on site in Norwood, CO over a time period of eighteen months. Meredith Nemerov received an Artist Fellowship grand to study the process of Japanese woodblock printmaking at a class at the Anderson Ranch Center for the Arts in Snowmass, CO in June of 2012.
These prints depict views of Lone Cone Mountain from different aspects and in different seasons. Some of the prints are black and white, some color and some hand-colored.
There are twelve unique woodblock prints in Meredith Nemirov's woodblock print series, Twelve Views of the Lone Cone. Limited Edition Prints are limited to sets of 12 per woodblock painting, each signed and dated. Take a look at the full collection in Meredith's Gallery.
