New Work by Artist: Mary Sweet (Painter and Woodblock Artist)
Sweet shares her artist process: " I have been a painter all my life but have only been doing woodblock prints, Japanese style since 1993...Most of my woodblock prints are done by reduction block rather than making a separate block for each color. Being a painter I have trouble thinking like a print maker as to how to separate out all the colors. I'd rather start with one block, carve out the white areas so they won't print and then print the lightest color first then I carve out what is to remain that color on the paper and print the next lightest color, or I start with the sky and work top to bottom being colorful to print darker areas over lighter ones."
Sweet uses dampened Japanese paper and Kento registration marks, as well as watercolor and Sumi ink. She prints by hand with a barren. Her Sumi ink paintings are more recent and allows her some improvising and spontaneity.
