About the eventA selling exhibition of rare contemporary woodblock prints from China's frontier Yunnan Province.
Chen Li (b. 1971) applies his unique vision and abundant originality to a rare reduction woodblock printing technique perfected in Yunnan.
The technique involves printing all of the colours from a single woodblock. Each step along the way destroys the previous one until the woodblock itself is destroyed.
Only a single 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.
Ranging from traditional Chinese landscapes, abstractions, whimsical Buddhas, and fantasy landscapes, Chen Li’s award-winning works are a song of line and colour.
