ARTIST STATEMENT: My interest is making simple images to construct repetitious forms and patterns by applying layers of color and shape. I want to add emphasis to the structural patterns that are derived from the accumulation of simple units. To this end, mixing Japanese style woodblock and Chin Cole process seem to fit well. Variously shaped/cut Ganpi papers were repeatedly pasted on the surface of woodblock to bring about subtle difference in layers and colors. Accumulations of paper create nuanced color on surface that has physical depth of layered paper.
