“The Woodcuts” is the first portfolio in George Cochrane’s Newburgh Suite. The collection will consist of eighteen total prints released in six portfolios, each using a distinct printing technique, and will culminate in a hand-lettered, facing-page edition of La Commedia to commemorate the 750th anniversary of Dante’s birth. In this portfolio, each woodcut has been hand-carved based on a photograph taken by the artist in and around Newburgh, NY. The images draw on the celestial and terrestrial motifs of Dante’s La Commedia, capturing Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory in a city whose rise, fall, and incremental resurrection echoes Dante’s epic literary saga. Using Thornwillow’s original Vandercook press, the three images--”25 Spring St.,” “St. George’s Cemetery,” and “The Dutch Reformed Church”--were hand-printed by the artist in letterpress ink on heavyweight archival paper and set in a purple cloth and yellow paste-paper portfolio, secured by a black ribbon.
