STEVE STRAUSSER

I have chosen to work in the medium of printmaking because it offers so many options for expression: the exactness of the etched line, the abstraction of monotype and the immediacy of woodcut. I have also created many contemporary prints using Solarplate and ImageOn, layering traditional printmaking techniques.

My subject matter portrays nature and also ecological and environmental concerns. My most recent series, “Idols, Heroes & Villains” are reduction linocut prints portraying famous people in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s. It is up to the viewer to decide in which category each belongs.
