Pythagoras Linocut

Recently, I added another linocut to my math and science series. This one gains its inspiration from Pythagoras. I printed Pythagoras on two types of rice paper (white and off-white) in two different sizes (8 x 10 and 7 x 9).

I'm really enjoying this series. I already have some ideas for my next two linocuts. I hope to feature some Women mathematicians.

wishing everyone a creative week.

  1. Love the details Juana :) and the strength in the hand. Look forward to seeing more. Highlighting women sound like a great idea :)

  2. I really like the way you gave the illusion of volume through the use of the hatched lines. Blessings!

  3. It is both powerful and yet delicate at the same time...

  4. You're very good with linocuts. I keep seeing people delving into this and wonder if it's a new phenomenon or what? Anyway, wonderful piece and I do hope you start highlighting women in the future. :)

  5. Creative linocut ~ and so well done ~ wonderful!

    Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

  6. This is great and so much detail too. I look forward to seeing more of your linocuts, Juana. :)

  7. As always, your work is so wonderful. The imagination you have is so interesting. One day I wll have to try linocuts.

    Oh, and I find the Shakespeare piece perfect for the anniversary celebration. I must ave missed it last week. Don't know why, I am generally looking forward to anything new you have done!
