“Empathy” is a limited edition woodblock print done in Ukiyo-e style. The print combines traditional and contemporary techniques with coloured layers done with aerosol and stencil and the line work carved from a pine wood block. All layers are hand cut/carved and then printed on to Ho-Sho paper.
“Empathy” reflects Creature Creature’s focus on dualism and opposing forces of this world. The two wolves run parallel to each other in both harmony and discord. The oversized daggers are inspired by old wood block prints of Japanese folk tales. They possess a sense of drama and surrealism to excel the narrative. There are Chinese characters on the side that read life, death, sun, moon, love, hate.
The piece is A4 size (210x297mm) and will fit into a standard pre-made frame.
Please note: Due to the nature of the printing process, each print is unique and may vary slightly from each other. Please allow time for postage.
