About the event

Katrine Levin Galleries is proudly exhibiting the award-winning prints of Chen Li at the Coningsby Gallery, between the 19 - 24 February 2018.

Katrine has travelled extensively in the Yunnan Province where she met Chen Li and is promoting his stunning woodblock prints in a pop up exhibition.

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.
