Twilight I-Alex Katz-1

"Twilight I" by Alex Katz is part of a portfolio of three woodcut prints, each representing a study of various points in time during the natural phenomena that precedes the beginning of the new day. While Alex Katz is best known for his portrait series, his landscapes are a significant part of his work. Katz’s profound interest in nature is reflected in this detailed study of light, each time capturing a brief moment in nature when the sun has not yet reached the horizon. The woodcut medium highlights the natural grains of the wood aiding to the atmosphere of natural beauty.

“ From photography I can’t get any colors and I can’t get the light I’m interested in, I want to go into areas where no one’s been in terms of time: at twilight, you get ten or fifteen minutes „
