Embracing the Cuts and Scrapes

101514thisweek.ericklead2Erick Nelson labors long hours with his hands to create the intricate woodcut prints he will unveil at The Rose this week. “Woodcut printmaking to me has always been about process — the process of taking an idea, creating an image and transforming that into a physical object,” Nelson explained.

What Nelson described as an autobiographical show, Cuts and Scrapes will not only offer viewers a look into this young artist’s life but also bring them closer to the natural world. An emotive print of Edward Abbey and an ubiquitous image found in nature, the pinecone, are just two of Nelson’s pieces that evoke his own personal connection with the outdoors, the painstaking process involved in reaching the final product and the common threads of beauty weaved softly in between.

“Cuts and Scrapes refers not only to the physical act of carving the blocks, but to the trials big and small that we all face as we discover ourselves,” Nelson explained. “With respect to an ancient printmaking tradition, I aim to capture a bit of the beauty and levity in the day to day.” — Robyn Vincent
