James Siena Reduction boxwood engravings
These prints were created using the organic shape of a cut from a boxwood tree, and carved using the reduction block process to allow for multiple layers of color using only one block. James Siena is a master of virtuostic simplicity, creating his images from formulaic configurations of lines, interlocking combs, concentric circles, or other basic forms. The magic of Siena’s work comes from the remarkable blend of patience, exactitude, intuition, and grace with which he executes the “visual algorithms” he devises.
