Earth (in Arles), 2004
32.5 x 23.75 in
Description: In three stages, the artist describes earth and moon images in a rich tapestry of color, shape and line. Hasegawa Yuichi’s lush, textural prints are created using a unique woodblock technique: Instead of carving one block for each color, the traditional manner, the artist creates his beautifully layered works with one block that he keeps carving, printing and effacing until he achieves his ideal image. This usually involves ten to 20 processes, perhaps one of the reasons his editions are especially small, sometimes eight or 10 and rarely more than 20.
