Screenprint - Intaglio - Relief

Relief prints

These are prints where the areas around the image to be printed are cut away, leaving the image on the block in relief. These raised areas are then inked and transferred onto a second surface, usually paper. The most common relief prints include woodcut.

'Hendrix' (2005). In this example, wood blocks were carved to carry each of the 4 colours required to create the image: orange, red, grey and black. The grain of the wood is clearly visible in the suface of the print.
