When deciding upon artwork for a modern space many people go straight to galleries and websites in search of the perfect painting. Don’t overlook alternative mediums, such as linocuts, in your hunt.
Linocuts are a printmaking variant. Like woodcuts, they require carving to build the plate, but the material is easier to use. Many famous artist, such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, used linocuts in their work.
The artist can choose to do monochromatic prints, or multi-colored by building off of the original gouged lines. The organic lines and use of negative space can help a linocut print draw the viewer into the artists intended world. The final result can be quite extraordinary!
