Abstract Saturday: Cecil Skotnes

South African (1926 - 2009) He was best known for his woodcuts. Though he began as a painter, he was drawn to woodcutting and made his mark in that medium, later creating the woodcuts as the work itself by painting directly on the carved panel, rather than merely using them to create prints.
