"My goal regarding the use of the one-block reduction woodcut method is to free the medium from a sometimes unavoidable stagnant appearance.Atilde‚Acircnbsp This technique of woodcut allows one to weave and integrate line and color in a rhythmic painterly way, thus creating in effect a tapestry."Atilde‚Acircnbsp
Don Gorvett

“With a painters eye for color, Gorvett produces print with elegant and evocative tonal harmonies not usually associated with woodcuts. And, with a sculptor’s sense of light, he creates dramatic contrast between color and carved hard-edge, giving great solidity to both form and space. What emerges are masterful woodcuts containing images of such power and grace that they place Gorvett among today’s most accomplished regional printmakers.”
