What is linocut printmaking?
Linocut is a printmaking technique in which a sheet of linoleum is hand carved using a variety of V and U shaped gouges. A brayer is used to apply ink to the carved block surface and then a sheet of paper is applied and rubbed/pressed to transfer the ink to the paper.
Linocut as a printmaking art form began in the twentieth century and has been used by many prominent artists including Pablo Picasso.
In this image here, you can see a linocut print called Star Girl. Next to it there is the linocut block that I carved to make this print and beneath that is a printmaking baren, the tutorial for which can be found here.
