Rod Nelson

Rod Nelson is a self-taught master printmaker based in Gloucestershire, UK.  We are so admiring his recent woodblock prints of waterfalls that we just had to post his work.  More can be said about him but we prefer to hear words from the artist himself: 

“I have, for my whole life, worked with wood and that has undoubtedly helped me with some aspects of woodblock printmaking. Although I have been making woodcuts for many years now, I am still continually excited by the potential of this ancient medium. Woodcut makes images that simply can not 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.”  – Interview from Print Day in May

More of his work can be found on his website and on Instagram.
