Bohemian Press

The Bohemian Press gallery showed different types of print styles. A piece by Paula Marty titled Space Invasion (linocut 2008), had many different pieces to it. However, I really liked the piece of the spaceship at the bottom in the center. It was done by linocut, so the black was amazingly dark and deep. The print is a rectangle that is very short and quite wide. The spaceship is crammed into one end of the print with the rest of the piece being pitch black. The way the print is balanced makes it look like it is going to move. The spaceship could just take off and fly across the paper. It almost makes you think where it is going to go.
