linocut on paper
A FORMAL SHORTCUT
A set of three linocuts is an example of design activities of Kubica – a contemporary designer who also employs classic techniques. The format of his black and white linocuts corresponds to posters created by the artist, and they are an obvious continuation of thinking within the categories of a formal shortcut. The sharply cut surfaces combined with subtle reliefs visible on deckle-edged paper extend the concept of graphic design.
