It’s 'all about wood'
This show is a celebration of the enduring qualities of wood as an artistic medium. It combines the wood-cuts of Rob Lansman and the freestyle carvings of John Williams.
Each artist begins his exploration with a very similar chisel followed by many diagonal cuts. Both searching as they go for that exact resistance of movement and stability which a well seasoned timber should always reward and provide.
Close cropped portraits are Rob’s choice of subject while John opts for the languid nature of the human figure itself. Rob further generates aesthetic flow and impact to his prints with colour while John works to exploit the grain as well as the hues of lighter and darker woods.
