John Pedder

John Pedder is a woodcut printmaker and uses this ancient form of printmaking to slow himself down in my pursuit of a raw and simple image. Pedder looks to distill shapes and lines down to the absolute essential elements and finds that the carving of wood allows him to better explore his choices whilst allowing the restrictions and glitches to help inform his work.

Pedder makes projects for himself and then takes the story with him as he explores and digs for a deeper understanding through craft skills and rigorous design.
