"Near San Simeon" by Gordon Mortenson

Gordon Mortensen uses a very complex process called Reduction Woodcut to create these beautiful images. He has dedicated his life to creating these master pieces. The woodcuts are so skillfully done that they are often mistaken as watercolors on Japanese paper.

Mortensen incorporates approximately 23-47 colors in his woodcuts and executes between 20-35 press runs on handmade Japanese Mulberry paper to produce 130- 300 prints per edition. The process is a slow and meticulous one, taking over 30 days to create one edition of extraordinary richness.

Mortensen is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in American Art. His works have won numerous awards, such as the Purchase Award at the 62nd Annual International Competition at the Philadelphia Print Club. His woodcuts are on display in countless private collections, over 100 corporate collections, and 20 museum collections, including the National Museum of American Art Washington D.C., the Library of Congress, the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, Lloyd's of London, AT&T, Xerox Corporation, IBM Corporation, Cargill Incorporated, General Mills Incorporated and Dayton Hudson Corporation, just to name a few.
