Modern Bungalow is privileged to feature Leon Loughridge, a Denver artist best known for his reduction wood block prints.
These prints result from a laborious process starting with a single block of wood. The artist carves the first "layer" of the image, and prints the first color of the piece. Then he re-carves the second image into the remainder of the same block, applies the second color and prints over the first image, and so forth. For a seven-color print, the artist must carve and print the same block seven times and match perfectly to the right area on the original work each time, ending with the smallest reduction of the original block.
This results in a beautifully layered piece which can never be exactly reproduced. Each piece is signed and numbered within the edition of the work.
