Ethan Snyderman is a Berkeley Artist born and raised. When he isn’t carving woodblocks late into the night, the elusive printmaker gravitates towards either the sea or riparian environments in search of natural treasures and solace. The artist favors the reduction technique for color prints– multiple layers are built up in succession from the same piece of wood. No matter the artist’s intention, the medium ultimately determines qualities of the image. Intuitive decisions are made along the way, thus the end product is always different from the initial sketch.
