One of my research stops in Seattle was the Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park. I was primarily there to visit some of the older pieces in the collection, but I stopped into the contemporary galleries, too, and was completely captivated by this large-scale woodblock print No. 19 by Chinese artist Fang Lijun. I really like the linear textiles contrasted against the soft sinuous shadows. The piece renders its figures with such sensitivity — and on a monumental scale.
I love Fang! she has great works
I didn’t know Fang’s work until I saw this piece, and have been reading about it since. You’re right — it’s fantastic!
