Reflections In A Blue Lake - The Woodblock Prints Of Chen Li at Coningsby Gallery Free

About

Katrine Levin Galleries is proudly exhibiting the award-winning prints of Chen Li at the Coningsby Gallery, between the 19 - 24 February 2018. Chen Li's woodblock prints are a song of line and colour. Steeped in Eastern philosophy and simultaneously traditional, contemporary, and whimsical, the woodblocks are a vivid testament to his unique vision and abundant originality. Chen Li uses a rare woodblock printing technique, called "reduction" or "waste-block" printing, perfected in his native Yunnan Province in China. This process requires stamping all the colours from a single, individual woodblock. Each step destroys the previous one until the woodblock itself is destroyed. Only a single limited edition can be printed this way and the process can never be repeated. The technique uses thick oil-based colours, creating relief-prints with a mesmerising texture.
