Welcome: Rod Nelson: Floor 1

Overview

Woodcut makes images that simply cannot be made in any other way. It sits on the boundary between art and craft - and anyone making woodcuts will quickly experience the delights and terrors of both.

The woodblock artist Rod Nelson is fascinated by the movement of water, it’s constant undulation, the moment that water breaks to spray and the play of light on its surface. He works to capture its many moods in these innovative and dynamic prints.

 

Rod is a self taught artist based in Gloucestershire, he has a unique approach using tools and techniques that he has spent many years refining.

 

His work, all printed by hand by the artist, is created in small, signed and limited editions on high quality archival grade papers using light-fast, vegetable oil-based inks.

 

Inspiration for Rod comes from nature, the landscape and the work of other printmakers from a variety of traditions in Europe and the Far East. He is co-author (with Merlyn Chesterman RE) of the successful book ‘Making Woodblock Prints’ and was a founder member of the print collective Pine Feroda.

 

He has been selected for several important national and international exhibitions, including the Royal Academy, The Royal Society of British Artists, the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair, the International Print Centre of New York, the Royal West of England Academy and the Shanghai International Woodblock Print Exhibition.
