Printing with Water

Chen Xiaofeng

Artist, Macau Woodblock Print Association

Chen Xiaofeng’s demonstration will focus on the control of water to print, and show how different artists work with water in their prints to achieve very different effects, often with sumi ink, known as moshui in Chinese. She will also discuss the variations in the use of water between Chinese woodblock printing and Japanese mokuhanga, while exploring the different possibilities within the printing itself.

Examples of Chen’s and other artists’ work from the Macau Print Association will form part of this presentation.
