Description

The Mont Aiguille is an iconic limestone mountain in the French Alps. It is part of the Massif du Vercors, and dominates the Trièves valley. In this print, I tried to show how, amazingly, this massive piece of rock stands entirely on its own in the surrounding landscape.

[FR] Le Mont Aiguille est une montagne calcaire emblématique des Alpes françaises. Il fait partie du Massif du Vercors, et domine la vallée du Trièves. Dans cette estampe, j'ai essayé de montrer comment, étonnamment, ce morceau de roche massif se tient complètement seul dans le paysage environnant.

Location: Chichilianne, Isère, France

🇬🇧 Woodblock printing is a technique where an image is carved out by hand out of one or several blocks of wood, after which a piece of printing paper is pressed against the block. This technique allows for detailed image printing in various colour ways. The grain of the wood is partly transferred to the paper, which gives the woodblock print its characteristic look.

🇫🇷 La xylographie est une technique oĂą une image est dĂ©coupĂ©e Ă  la main dans un ou plusieurs blocs de bois, après quoi un morceau de papier est pressĂ© contre le bloc. Cette technique permet d’imprimer des images dĂ©taillĂ©es dans diffĂ©rentes couleurs. La texture du bois est en partie transfĂ©rĂ©e sur le papier, ce qui donne Ă  la xylographie son aspect caractĂ©ristique.

🇳🇱 De houtsnede is een grafische hoogdruktechniek waarbij met de hand een afbeelding wordt uitgesneden/gegutst uit één of meerdere blokken (betrekkelijk zacht) hout. Vervolgens wordt een stuk papier tegen dit paneel wordt geperst. De techniek maakt het mogelijk om gedetailleerde afbeeldingen in verschillende kleurgangen af te drukken. De textuur van het hout is deels zichtbaar op het gedrukte resultaat, wat de houtsnede een karakteristiek uiterlijk geeft.
