CA in ReliefCalifornia in Relief -
A History in Wood and Linocut Prints

essay by curator Art Hazelwood

The story of the development of the relief print in California carries with it the story of the Golden State. The woodcut and wood engraving techniques formed the basis of several distinctive art movements as well as cultural and political movements. Women found powerful and early voices in this media, as did the Labor movement and more recently Latino artists. Guest curator Art Hazelwood has selected nearly 100 works spanning 100 years of California history.

Read the essay in the pdf (1.6 mb) of the exhibition brochure.

From the Printed Matter website

Synopsis: Forest Song is the trade edition of Art Hazelwood's woodcut print series. The text and images are both black and white printed woodcuts, standing side by side on opposite pages like captions preceding silent movie scenes. The story has a universal and primitive feel, involving dreamlike scenes of a music so primal and powerful that it "draws everything inward to a whirling center." People metamorphose into flying beasts, and civilization is forever disrupted.
