Granite Spit, Red (detail), Lino Cut
Karen Klee-Atlin’s new series of reductive linocuts, Granite Spit, focuses on a ridge of weathered granite in a Northern Ontario lake. The stone, smoothed and exposed by glaciers and encrusted with lichen and scrub, provides a subject that is well suited to the slow work of carving and the accretion of inky layers. The first of the twelve prints features the colors of nature; the rest are abstractions which use disparate color palettes for every pass through the press. The result is a series of unique prints, each one drawing attention to different features of the rocky landscape.
