Personally, I have always considered linocut technique, like sort of “lower” form of art. Something the kids do in school and that main purpose of it is to keep kids busy and certainly not to hope for any more “noble” result coming out of it.
Well Sherrie York showed me how utterly wrong I was. Her prints are as amazing as any “noble” work of art. And the life and the air with which her works breathe would make even great master Hokusai take of his hat.
I am leaving you with few examples and you can enjoy many more of them on her web page http://www.sherrieyork.com
