the mountains keep secrets

"The Mountains Keep Secrets", relief print, Peter McLean, 2011

That’s the title of this little print.  It’s quite delightfully simple, a relief print from a little block of knotty pine found amongst the dirt, and yet there are plenty of depths and subtleties to keep me interested.  If you want to find out what secrets the mountains keep, than have a look here.

    Pete, have you printed all the sides of your block? I like the print.

    Thanks Al, yeah each side is maybe only 2×1 inch – printed each side next to each other, as if rolling it along – does interesting things with converting the 3D structure into 2D.
