About the Artwork

“Twilight” by Alex Katz is 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.

“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”.

Alex Katz

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.
