Empathy Woodblock Print

$110.00 AUD

Empathy

210 x 297 mm (Standard A4 size)
Stencil and Wood Block Print on Ho-Sho Paper 
Edition of 20, signed by the artists.

'Empathy" is a limited edition woodblock print done in Ukiyo-e style. The print combines traditional and contemporary techniques with coloured layers done with aerosol and stencil and the line work carved from a pine wood block. All layers are hand printed on to ho-sho paper. 

This is a collaboration between artist duo Creature Creature who designed the work, and artist/printmaker Rook Rem who used his experience and skills to hand cut/carve all 7 layers. The edition of 20 was printed by all three artists their Collingwood studio in Melbourne. 

"Empathy" reflects Creature Creature's focus on dualism and opposing forces of this world. The two wolves run parallel to each other in both harmony and discord. The oversized daggers are inspired by old wood block prints of Japanese folk tales. They possess a sense of drama and surrealism to excel the narrative. There are Chinese characters on the side that read life, death, sun, moon, love, hate. 

The piece is A4 size (210x297mm) and will fit into a standard pre-made frame. As it is Christmas time, the print will also be packaged in custom wrapping paper also designed by Creature Creature to wrap this print as a gift or use again for another Christmas pressie!
