East Bay Farmers’ Markets

 

This linoleum reduction print is by Gary Crandall, a Martinez-based gardener and filmmaker whose art is inspired by his daily work. “Growing food,” he says, “is itself a kind of creative process. This view of the hands harvesting is a perspective
unique to the gardener or fieldworker. It’s important for people to remember the human element involved in bringing the food to their plates.” Gary creates his prints in successive layers, carving away more linoleum from the block before each color change. He’s currently building his art website at wildcutprints.com.
