|Katsutoshi Yuasa, Pseudo Mythology 2, 2011, oil based woodcut with pigment on paper|
The artist will also be In Conversation on Saturday, November 10, 2012, from noon to 2pm.
Yuasa makes woodcut prints from his own digital photographs. By combining two processes – the camera’s ‘snapshot’ and the woodcut’s lengthy reinterpretation of the same image – he hopes to crystallise the atmospheric and emotional character of his subjects. His pieces take weeks to complete, transforming his ephemeral subjects into haunting images, as beautiful up close as from a distance.
