What is a hand cut print?
Ricardo has created his own form of art, the hand cut print. From overlapping multiple layers of color through hand cut stencils Ricardo makes these original works of Art. Paper stencils are made by cutting shapes out of paper with an exact-o knife and then using a squeegee to push the mixed acrylic inks through these openings when it is attached to a screen. Each color is a different paper stencil that is layered upon one another as the puzzle is pieced together and the image is formed into the print. This hand cut print becomes a culmination of color shapes built upon these relationships. In celebration of the heroes of Japanese woodblock prints and a furthering of the torch in new innovative approaches to the printed image, these works promote a renewed sense of beauty juxtaposed with masterful technique.
Each piece is made by hand, signed and dated by Ricardo.
