Half Cut opens this evening at Stour Space in Hackney Wick. The show is curated by Nick Morley (aka Lino Cut Boy) and features the work of eight artists including James Brown, Sean Starwars and Victoria Browne.
Bringing together artists from the UK, USA and Italy, Half Cut is a showcase of contemporary woodcut and linocut prints. The apparently simple technique of carving and printing a block of wood or linoleum gives rise to a multitude of possibilities.
The artists in the exhibition have been selected for their innovative and diverse approaches to the medium. Each artist’s hand is apparent in the printed images they produce; concept and method are intertwined.
