Japanese Watercolour Woodcut
Original prints made in a traditional Japanese way of printing. I got to participate this special printing course when I was in Helsinki for my exchange semester. During the course I made a four-layered woodcut print, in a limited edition of 20. All prints vary in colours and of course all of them contain individual characteristics (and maybe printing mistakes :) )
My style of working isn't detailed and perfectionist but more intuitive and expressionist. I transport emotions and quirkyness rather than gaining respect for a persistent execution of detail.
The traditional creation technique itself almost became a meditative process: mixing own colours with pigment, the right treatment of the paper )proper wetting and cutting), producing and preparing the wooden plates and eventually colouring them for printing.
