Blaze Cyan is a British artist, living in London. She works within the mediums of etching and woodcut, and her primary subject area is landscape. Blaze holds a particular fascination with ancient trees, how they transcend human timescales and the natural beautiful grotesque of their trunks. Her prints represent the trees in a harsh light, with the use of heavy black and white contrast. This monochromatic value emphasises the texture and twisted shape of the tree.
