Beta Eruption

This linocut print is the second image of the Eruption aspect in the Distaster series. Carving in linolium block produces such a distinct feel that is worlds apart from the birch woodblocks. They are both extremely expressive mediums to work with, but every particular image is puncuated by the material that is used. In this case, I feel that the always shifting earth is a fluid thing and the smoothness of the lino allows that dynamic to show.
