Mokuhanga, the Baren and Printing at Home

Sep 11 - 22, 2023

9AM-5PM

Concept

This exciting printmaking intensive focuses on mokuhanga, a water-based Japanese woodblock printmaking method. This unique process involves hand carving, is environmentally friendly, and is able to be done at home at any scale, at any time, and in any place. The class discipline is to create a dialog between storytelling and a relationship with color, form, and space as a narrative in a diptych or long format. The students compose and recompose prints to create complex images printed from beautiful shina wood onto traditional Japanese mulberry paper.

Faculty

Hiroki Morinoue

Born in 1947, in Holualoa on the Island of Hawaii, Hiroki Morinoue received his BFA degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) in 1973. Traveling to Japan in 1976 through 1982, he studied sumi brush painting with Koh Ito Sensei and Japanese woodblock printmaking, Mokuhanga with Takashi Okubo Sensei. Hiroki and Setsuko Morinoue established Studio 7 Fine Arts Gallery in November 1979, as the first and now longest standing contemporary art gallery in Hawaii. A humble space in a small village with a charmed history, the gallery holds an open-ended mission: to create and promote Contemporary Art. For Hiroki the landscape of Hawaii, its light, rocks, skies, and water has deeply influenced his work alongside the aesthetic of Japanese arts, crafts and landscaped gardens, which is prevalent in his work. In all of Morinoue’s work there is a compelling sense of place, curiosity and dialogue between the art and its viewer. He is a patient observer of nature, the rhythms of the ocean shoreline, the fluidity of lava flows, patterns of light on water, using symbols as suggestive messages and patterns from nature. He transcends these observations in various mediums, including watercolor, oil, acrylic and mix media paintings, monotypes, sculptures, photography, ceramics and Mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock prints). Hiroki Morinoue has shown widely in the United States and Japan. He has completed several major public art commissions, including projects at the Honolulu Public Library, and for the Hawaii Convention Center in 1996-97 where he executed a 90 foot mural titled Mauka, Makai. His work can also be viewed at Pahoa High School Library and First Hawaiian Bank. Morinoue’s work is represented in the collections of The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, The Honolulu Academy of Arts, The Hawaii State Foundation for Culture and the Arts, Neiman-Marcus in Honolulu & Chicago, Verizon Hawaii, Achenbach Foundation of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, The National Parks, Maryland, Ueno No Mori Museum, Tokyo, the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA. and many private commissions and collections.

Monoprint and Transfers: Distorting the Image

Golnar Adili

Tuition $1,160
Code R0101-24

In this experimental, mixed-media printmaking workshop, students start by working in simple and immediate print processes such as solvent transfer and monoprint to reproduce an image, then distort and make anew through scale shift, repetition, folding, cutting, weaving, collage, stacking, and wrapping. Students allow the image to inspire the distortion-making process, and pull from different disciplines such as book arts, topographical maps, maquettes, and architecture. Even though monoprint tracing and transfers are introduced and explored, any 2D image-making process can be the starting point for transformation of the flat and the ordinary into extraordinary dimensional works.

Woodcut and Collage

Yashua Klos

Tuition $1,160
Code R0202-24

Explore the process of translating imagery into dynamic mark-making that is intrinsic to the medium of woodblock printmaking and collage. Students combine elements of woodblock printmaking, drawing, cut paper, and other collage materials to produce complex and compelling imagery, and add to their practice with a whole new toolbox of methods and new conceptual approaches to the woodblock medium. While the primary tenets of traditional block printing are covered, printmaking operates as a means to facilitate the student’s concept. Students gain knowledge of the fundamentals of woodblock printmaking—carving, reproduction, registration, inking, etc.—and various collage applications to produce a multilayered surface.
