Blaze Cyan

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Artist/Printmaker

Working within the mediums of drawing, etching, and woodcut, my subject area is landscape. Having a particular fascination with ancient trees, the portrayal of time and the beautiful grotesque. I identify with ideas of mystery, the dark woods and the impossible lifespans of veteran trees. I like to work in intense detail, exploring every facet and texture of the subjects. The technique of etching has an unpredictable nature and I find it best to work with the processes allowing them their own input into the work. Drawing in charcoal I also identify with the relationship between the image and substance used to create it.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist means freedom, my work begins as an exploration, a love of being present in the landscape. I spend many hours walking and gathering sensory information, collecting interesting pieces of twisted wood and stones, memories and ideas. Its about the process, calming and concentrated, and the opportunity to communicate the love I have for nature in a way that I hope will inspire others to appreciate it too. Teaching is also an important part of this process, not just passing on technical skills, but interacting with other artists, enabling a deeper understanding of my own work.
