Cabo Mayor (collage)

The basis for this artwork was a vintage postcard of a famous lighthouse in northern Spain found on the internet. The image was then transformed into a woodcut with a minor intervention in the collage technique, where I turned the lighthouse by 180 degrees so that its top lands on the neighbouring building. Parallel lines create optical illusions of multiple dimensions .
