The Centaur's Forest is an image that came from the standing centaur tessellation I mentioned in a previous blog. The image is a simple translation with very little articulation but I decided to develop it into a linocut. Although its not as complicated and articulated as the "The Golden Centaur" image in my earlier blog it seemed easier to include it within a forest. The moon is faintly appearing through the clouds. The tree is a transformed centaur. Figure 1 is a pencil drawing of the concept that became the linocut. I decided to remove the trees in the background as they detracted from the central tree image and that of the contrasting tessellation of the centaurs in the foreground. Figure 2 depicts the final linocut print of "The Centaurs Forest".
