Jeanne Amato | Silhouettes - Limited Edition Woodcut Print 11/75
Silhouettes is a limited edition woodcut print handmade by Jeanne Amato, a long time apprentice and studio assistant of Sabra Field. You can see the parallels between their Vermont inspired work fairly easily. Silhouettes is a peaceful scene, featuring the shadows of tree trunks radiating onto a snowy forest floor. The stark contrast between the snow, and shadows cast by the tree trunks create a intricate dance of light and dark. More detail is captured in the topography of the snow, hills & valleys create numerous shadows in the landscape.
"While taking a black and white photography class I found myself completely obsessed with the winter landscape and it's simplicity. Although I love photography, especially black and white, I couldn't resist the temptation of enlarging the image and creating this woodcut." ~ Jeanne Amato
