Tom Marioni Woodblock
I was exploring the Crown Point Press website tonight and came across this interesting conceptual woodcut by Tom Marioni. To create this 41 inch x 27 inch print he invited a group of friends to throw darts at a spiral pasted over the piece of wood that would become the printing plate. I enjoy conceptual pieces like this, although knowing the back-story is very important for me in fully appreciating the work.
