Carol Wilhide Justin
Carol Wilhide Justin makes woodcut prints from her own digital photographs. The camera’s ‘decisive moment’ and the woodcut’s lengthy reinterpretation of the same image are combined allowing the character of her subjects to be crystallised in an atmospheric and emotional way. Memory, as narrative, as emotional truth, as time and in its fallibility lies at the heart of all her work. In a world increasingly driven by the digital, Carol’s work celebrates a belief in the haptic and analogue. Woodcuts are time consuming to produce, slow and exacting, built one layer at a time, the result of decision and deliberation.
