“Gathering Grains and Grooves” by Ben Calvert

“Gathering Grains and Grooves” by Ben Calvert

Ben is a printmaker with a passion for nature and the interpretation of what is familiar. His art is created by carving images into wood, inking the wood, burnishing paper by hand onto the inked block, then pulling up the paper to reveal the print. Ben states “pulling that first print off the block is pure joy. The excitement multiplies when there are multiple blocks for each color involved. Each successive color is a layer that informs the mystery and appeal of the final image.”
