Takuji Hamanaka

This exhibition showcases woodblock works by Japanese artist Takuji Hamanaka, who was trained as a professional woodblock printmaker at the Adachi Studio in Tokyo. The allure of Hamanaka’s work lies in his balance of precision and spontaneity, and of flat surfaces with visual dimensions. Distinct forms and patterns emerge through the application of color woodblock printing and the repetition of the Chine Collé process, where layer upon layer of thin Gampi paper are built upon the surface.
