*Found: Bryn Perrott’s Woodcuts and Such

Por Fer (@blackbleach)

Siempre me ha atraído la estética de los tatuajes, más aún si éstos son inspirados en los tatuajes antiguos o con esa onda media rusa que últimamente me obsesiona (un poco). Pero cuando llevan toda la historia del tatuaje y la sacan de contexto es más entretenido aún. Por lo mismo me llamó mucho la atención el trabajo de Bryn Perrott y sus figuras de madera talladas con imágenes de tatuajes clásicos.

Bryn Perrott: “My mind does not wander when I carve; I make for purpose, not from artistic representation. I have focus when I work, which is a relief from my otherwise scattered thoughts. Carving feels like real work: something is being physically accomplished. Each cut made gets me closer to the next image within the larger scene. I simply like making a good image, a strong image. I started getting tattooed seven years ago and started working in a tattoo shop fours years ago. I have since become increasingly interested in the aesthetic and history of tattoo images because of the simplicity and directness those images convey to even the briefest of glances. Which is why I reference heavily from tattoo history; I’m trying to present these images in an equally strong but new context. Essentially I want to pay homage to those references and influences, to the history of an industry built on real work. That, and to always revamp these icons without tiring them out.” (via, inkbutter.com)
