studio blog of Endi Poskovic

After posting images from a visit to Chen Qi’s studio in Beijing last Wednesday, I am including several detailed images of his great woodcuts. Chen Qi’s woodcut prints are cut in pear plywood blocks and then hand-transfered onto traditional Chinese xuan paper applying water-soluble pigments. While the prints reflect the long tradition of woodblock printing in China, in Chen’s choice of materials and working methods, the prints challenge, in both the detail and size of their description, any misconceptions of the woodcut as a small scale, archaic and totally limited medium.
