[info]accio_arse01:26 am - ART POST: Some of my favourite woodcuts
With art from Shiko Munakata, Linda Clark, Lisa Hooper and Stanley Donwood

Starting with SHIKO MUNAKATA, now deceased, alas. I saw an amazing exhibition of his art when I was doing my degree. He was and still is a big influence on me.

My images come from a book, but in real life these are huge, ceiling to floor length paper prints, hung on scrolls. There's so much energy from them. 

I was completely blown away by these.  i must have stood in front of them for half an hour, just being amazed.

Other gods from the series:

So simple and strong; I'd never seen anything like them.

Mt Fuji

A panel from a series in a story:

There were also a load of highly decorative 'nature' pieces, which reminded me of Klimt's stylised landscapes of plants and trees like this:

Only I think I like Munakata's better:

Later in his career, he'd experimented with rubbing colours through from the back.  I thought this was interesting.

More of his art here.


I did my Masters with her, when she was learning how to print onto Ceramic, and she was kind enough to give me some of her prints as a present.  They're woodprints on the back of chinese prints with gold leaf (that's the orange things).


I saw an exhibition of her prints in Scotland.  Choughs in a tree.

Lapwings (non-woodcut)


He did the cover of Thom Yorke's 'The Eraser'. Some details below.

A cute moving display of the woodcuts here. More info on this artist here.

This artwork was also painted onto the side of a building. Nice, huh?
