Kem Lady, Hoi An
This is a woodcut reduction print as part of my Hoi An series in 2019. Made with 3 layers using the reduction method where you gradually reduce the block as you carve each separate layer state by state. The image was drawn from a photo I took whilst walking through the old town on a hot summer’s day with the Kem Lady ‘ice cream seller’ cycling past ringing her bell to advertise. In the background you can see the iconic yellow buildings of Hoi An ancient town with tailors, bars + cafes lining the streets.
3 layer woodcut reduction print, carved from a 20 x 30cm Japanese magnolia woodblock. Hand printed on 300 GSM 100% cotton archival rag.
