Wednesday’s woman … returning to Meinrad Craighead

April 16, 2014

I have as I hoped returned to the Sign of the tree; meditations in images & words by Meinrad Craighead. I came across the book by accident and bought a copy soon after; I had really  good intentions to read it more fully and I did. However; soon, I and the book got taken over by events and it got shelved.  

However, this weekend after doing a wood engraving course I remembered Meinrad’s lovely images and I wondered if I could perhaps be inspired.

She doesn’t do wood engraving rather more wood cutting, or scraping on a board, mainly in black and white. However, her approach to this medium is as original and  innovative as the images themselves.  Meinrad’s work is at first glance is  ‘black and white; but she brings in an infinite range of mysterious greys and subtle textures … and enviable feat; which I may not achieve in this life time!
