About Cecilia Lieder

I am a printmaker. The major portion of my work has been centered around the creation of original woodcuts and stone lithographs. The entire process of producing a print engrosses me. I draw the images, make the color separations, carve the wooden blocks or etch the lithographs, and then hand print all of the prints myself. I still print the woodcuts with a wooden spoon or baren which allows me greater flexibility and textural variety. I enjoy pushing the limits of size and color in woodcuts using a synthesis of Western and Eastern printing methods that I have developed over time. In lithography, I have primarily been interested in drawing on the stone because of the subtle range of values that can be achieved on its responsive surface. Moving back and forth between these two printmaking media, with their widely varying technical and expressive differences, has created a satisfying balance.

The symbols of realism have remained constant in human experience and possess powerful subconscious impact, accrued over millennia. Strongly tied to the physical commonalties between people, realistic imagery can be simultaneously accessible and profound. Through keenly focused observation of the natural world around me, realistic accuracy has become a search for truth. In the extended process of bringing an image into existence as a print, the significance of the subject matter - both abstractly and in personal growth - reveals itself. As a result, the work is both a record of my discoveries, and the dynamic process of growth in itself. Consciously using the physicality of objects as a door to growth and transcendence in this manner, I call intentional realism.
