Being an artist, curator and writer, Cedar Lewisohn's practice utilizes the physically laborious techniques of wood block printing, both for the performative qualities of its intensive process andits poetic and timeless aesthetic. Subverting and abusing the rules of craftsmanship Lewisohn works directly onto large wooden panels, embossing his images by hand rather than using a print bed. The ink leaves its grubby traces and his figures defy their author, taking on a life of their own.
