We are so excited to introduce Nicholas Reti’s hand-pulled linoleum block print portfolio of Crested Butte, Colorado.
Stepping out of his oil painting realm, Nicholas decided to try a different medium this spring. From this departure came Nicholas’ nine piece collection of iconic Crested Butte images pictured below.
Each print starts first with a drawing in pencil that is made on a linoleum block. Then, Nick carved the image out of the block. He then applied a soy-based ink onto the remaining raised surfaces. A piece of mulberry paper is placed over the inked block and a bamboo leaf baren is used to rub and apply pressure to transfer the ink from the block to the paper. Nicholas completed each step of the print making process in this portfolio.
These prints can be purchased framed or unframed, in a full portfolio or individually. There are only 20 prints of each block available.
Individual prints: Framed prints- $150, Unframed- $85
Full portfolio: Framed- $1200, Unframed- $689
We hope you enjoy Nicholas’ latest interpretation of our beautiful mountain town! See larger images of each block print here. Shoot us a line or drop by the gallery to see these prints and let us know what you think.
