Rabley Gallery will be launching two new prints for the London Original Print Fair Online from 1 May. Hunter Moon and Abate woodcut print editions are hand-printed in the ukiyo-e tradition. Their subtle hues and pared down aesthetic invite contemplation.
Made exclusively for the launch of the Rabley Gallery online shop. View Sara Lee Threshold – Threshold is a new woodcut, which has it’s focus on a distant horizon, between the viewer and what is held beyond it. It is part of a series of new small prints including three very special monotypes, New Moon, Shuttered Moon and Before Harvest, each in 2 versions only, made using techniques borrowed from the Japanese tradition in which water based ink and painted onto the block and hand-printed onto Japanese paper, small variations will occur.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sara Lee’s images are a response to the ephemeral nature of landscape and our profound relationship with it. The expanse of the landscape has no bearing to assess distance. Each is a desert of infinity where one is pulled into the nuance of surface.
Lee predominantly works with drawing and print, including pastel and woodblock in the ukiyo-e tradition. Her practice involves working from site-specific landscapes, followed by extended studio-based work.
