Japanese woodblock prints made in Japan while on a residency at MI-LAB (Mokuhanga Innovation Lab) is an artist-in-residence program designed to provide extensive knowledge of mokuhanga (water-based woodblock printmaking) and its techniques to international artists, printmakers and teachers of printmaking, as well as to enable me to use traditional tools and materials.
"Erasing a line, creates a line" this is how my wood block prints emerged. I like to print red on red, raw sienna combined with burnt sienna has given me these strong shades of reds. Blue and black and other shades of green, make up my oil based woodblock prints.
Black printed on black, but I never use the actual colour of black. I make my blacks from all different blues, greens and greys.
