In the same spirit of the previous “Ebony and Ivory” post COLORBLIND SERIES 4 #COLORBLIND DIEGO ART SERIES 5

We now present a black and white LINOCUT experiment by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).

Diego was always experimenting, glass paint, sand paint, collage, and here LINOCUT. As an example of his artistic genius, I’d rate this at best a “C” plus, but not bad for the first time carving piece of linoleum. The hard part is to think in reverse: what you carve away becomes the white, and what’s left of the lino surface covered with ink and pressed to paper becomes the black.
