Studio blog of Annie Bissett, an artist working with traditional Japanese woodblock printing (moku hanga)
27 October 2005
I just discovered the work of Ralph Kiggell, a British printmaker who studied in Japan and now lives in Asia - Thailand, I think. What I most like about his work is that the shapes and composition are bold and seem simple at first look, but the printing is very complex, textured and nuanced. From the description on his website it seems that he's doing moku hanga, but also using some power tools! His prints are quite large, some of them over 5 feet wide.
