about printmaking

Printmaking is one of the old crafts from medieval times, used to produce books and bibles for mass production. Over time some artists found greater interest in the beautiful appearance of prints. It became more popular for the artists to produce limited prints.

floating series

This intaglio print series represents myideology of nature. It is an interpretation of my voice and language in different organic shapes and forms through meditation. I explore my emotional response to, and poetic sense of, nature using harmonised colour combinations derived from Japanese tradition.

essential voyage series

This series was intended to represent a harmonised sense of nature within orderly compositions and colour combinations. Each image was created from organic shapes drawn after deep meditation focusing on nature. Each organic shape conveys a sense of airiness, partly achieved by the use of surrounding uniform spaces which aims to promote each colour within a harmonised three colour combination.

innate series

This series’ sub title is ‘subconscious fortune’. It explores my abstracted inner emotive spiritualties in nature based on Japanese religious aesthetic aspects. I used multi-plate to create intricate images, each plate applying different colour. I produced this series with bleed printing which prints beyond the white edge of the paper so there is no white edge of paper around the image.

harmony series

This series represents the themes of the four seasons using emblematic colours for each season. It portrays the aesthetic aspects of Japan’s traditional religious culture which is abstractly structured on nature.I produced these images using the multi-plate etching method; layering colours and marks on plates to create intricate three dimensional forms on paper.
