Artwork description:

Wood engraving. A view of an electricity pylon (a transmission tower) as seen from directly beneath. The lines of the structure and its wires intersect and collide to create a geometric pattern that's almost abstract. Although built to a standard design, each pylon has its own identity. VC9 stands over Walthamstow Marshes in east London.

Actual image size is 5x5cm; this print is framed, mounted and glazed. Unframed prints from the edition are also available via Artfinder.

Wood engraving is a traditional form of fine art printmaking. The artist uses specialised tools to create the image in relief (and reverse) on the end grain of a block of hardwood - usually boxwood - by removing the 'white' parts of the image. This technique is painstaking and highly technical, and allows for the creation of exquisitely detailed works. Rebecca's wood engravings have been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, with the Society of Wood Engravers, and in galleries across the world from Japan to the USA.
