Sybil Andrews' Color Linocuts
I recently ran across British/Canadian artist Sybil Andrews (1898 - 1992) who worked in multiplate linocut. While her modernist style doesn't appeal to me, I always find something of interest in viewing multicolor block prints. In Andrews' case, I like the textures she's achieved using western methods and I find the edges of her prints especially interesting. Any guesses about why there's all that ink past the borders of the print?
