Featuring work by two of Japan's leading printmakers: Takahiko Hayashi and Ando Shinji.
Matrix is pleased to announce two of the leading printmakers in Japan; Takahiko Hayashi and Ando Shinji. Takahiko Hayashi is a rising star in Japan. His work has a mystical quality and the titles reflect interest in philosophy as well as natural phenomena. His etchings are composed out of hundreds of detailed lines creating masterfully bold abstractions. Â Ando Shinji creates highly detailed botanical etchings in which he combines several plates with chine collÃ© to achieve a maximum saturation of color. Shinji custom dyes Gampi paper for maximum control of his overall color scheme. His subjects often emanate out of a soft shadow into subdued light, giving them a sense of wonder, as if seen unexpectedly in their inherent beauty.
