Deborah Kozak “Wondrous”
“Solace,” a show of limited edition, original linocut and woodcut prints by Deborah Kozak, will run from Thursday, September 16, through Wednesday, October 6 in the River Room at River Arts. There will be an artist’s reception on Saturday, September 18 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Kozak is inspired and sustained by the beauty and colors of the world around her. Based on photographs that she takes, her handmade woodcut and linocut relief prints are created using the reduction method, successively carving and adding colors to a single block that, once completed, can never be used again.
“Over the past 18 months, I was able to find solace in both the scenery around me and the process of printmaking itself,” said Kozak. “Printmaking challenges me to distill my reactions to what I see. There’s a wonderful tension between the contemplative action of carving a block and the excitement of seeing an image come to life on paper.”
Show runs from September 16 through October 6.
