Limited edition signed and numbered reduction woodcut by CA artist Gordon Mortensen 49/130 titled “Pfeiffer Big Sur” circa 1980.
“Art,” declares Gordon Mortensen, “is my addiction, my drug, my life. I am compelled to do it.” Indeed he is, devoting between eight and twelve hours a day, seven days a week, to his intricate reduction woodcuts — woodcuts that are so skillfully done, most people think they are watercolors on Japanese rice papers.
Although Mortensen has become famous for his woodcuts depicting landscapes, when he began studying art it was with the intent of becoming a portrait painter. In fact, he financed three years of graduate school at the University of Minnesota by doing portrait commissions. Mortensen discovered, however, that the human figure did not allow him the creative freedom he needed. Image of river scene with trees, rocks in greens, blues, turquoise and black measures 18 3/4″ x 25 1/2″. Overall size is 27″ x 33″. Framed in a metal frame with conservation matting. Slight wave to the paper upper right. Overall very nice condition. Shipped without glass. ap1861
