Artwork description:

Original, handmade wood engraving. This image - dark in tone as well as content - conveys a sense fear and foreboding. Details at the bottom of the image hint at the human presence: we are invited to peer over the edge, and to contemplate what happens next...

This 7x10cm image is printed on a large sheet of Zerkall paper, with generous margins to allow for mounting and/or framing as required. Framed prints from this addition are also available via Artfinder.

Wood engraving is a 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.
