linocut research

These Linocuts come from a book I bought in China, unfortunately I don't know who the artists are since I don't read chinese. These Linocuts communicate a beautifully lonely and isolated atmosphere that I would like to emulate. Woodcut techniques are a big part of Chinese art history, especially during the Tang Dynasty and more recently in 1930's and 40's. It is a highly emotive and striking tool used to communicate the most powerful feelings of discontent and despair. I'm going to explore this through linocut (because of time restraints)
