"The woodcut is an up-front medium, straightforward. Every cut, stipple, nick, and scratch, every slip of the tool - it all shows. What you do is what you get, amidst our culture of excess, media hype, and relative values, the woodblock provides a refreshing clarity too often abandoned for showy, highly technical, and more seductive media. It offers a center point, a reality that is rock solid, deep rooted, and enduring. What is, is."
