Dear art lovers,
Last week I took over the Rizoom Instagram account. It's an open and experimental platform for all kinds of artists from the Netherlands.
shared stories about my artist in residences and gave insight in my art and artpractise. If you are interested, please check out my posts on their account.
Printmaking Studio Itsukaichi is located on a mountain nearby a shrine. The building is a former townhall. On the ground floor are press-machines, hand presses and many tools. On the first floor are the living quarters where I stayed with two Japanese printmakers: Miki Hatakeyama (silkscreen, woodcut and lithograph) and Ayumi Anzai (lithograph). You can view the works I made at the printmakingstudio here.
After Mino I not only came to love Japanese paper, I also very much enjoyed the process of how to make paper. Naturally I got excited when I learned about a paper making workshop just a few kilometres from the printmaking studio. Here are some photos of us making Gundo paper
