Dave Reeser’s woodcut prints are made primarily with the subtraction technique, where a light color is printed then the block is cut away. The next darker or contrasting color is overprinted. Often, the key block of the darkest color is printed last. The prints are made up of between eight and fourteen layers of color. The traditional Intaglio techniques of dry point, line etching, and mezzotint, also effectively communicate his abstract language.
