Dual Nature


This woodblock print is inspired by the theme of opposites: black and white, night and day, ying and yang. The idea took several drawings to refine. The concept was brewing in my subconscious after receiving several requests for a Loon image from clients. I wanted to make an image where the viewer dwells on harmonious opposites. It is signed on the back to hang on the wall in either direction.


Lyell Castonguay designed, carved, and printed this original artwork. Ink is applied to a carved wooden block and hand-pressed onto Strathmore 300 Series paper. Multiple carved blocks layer colors, resulting in a dramatic effect. The artist signed, titled, and numbered the edition in pencil below the image.
