Description

Micah Schwaberow creates autumnal view of the Pacific Ocean from Andrew Molera State Park, in Monterey County, Califonia. The fog looms as a dark horizon out on the Pacific. Above the fog the clouds begin to lift and blue sky peeks through.

Born in Eugene, Oregon in 1948, Micah Schwaberow is noted for his exquisitely rendered miniature landscapes, still lifes and figure studies. Having studied painting locally he decided to further his studies in woodcut techniques. He attended a two-week course in woodblock printing in Japan. Soon, he moved there to train for a year at the atelier of Japanesel master woodcut printmaker Toshi Yoshida.

Schwaberow has held teaching positions in California and Japan and his work was included in special edition letterpress books. Since 1983, when Schwaberow returned from Japan, his prints have been relatively small in scale, offering distinctively fragile images in both landscape and figure studies.
