Japanese Lessons
April Vollmer


May 12 - May 30, 1998

These new color woodcuts by April Vollmer of nature — plants, flowers, fish — are printed in luminous colors using the traditional Japanese woodcut technique. This work examined the relationship between nature and the individual, and the similarities in shape between plant, animal and landscape. This is the waterbase woodcut technique used by the ukiyo-e masters of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. 

Opening Reception: Tuesday, May 12, 6-8pm
