Blue City

A moku hanga woodcut for the colours ( four plates) and an etching for the black parts. This print was designed as a collage from african fabrics. Quite different techniques are meeting here: The traditional japanese moku hanga woodcut, the etching as a western tradition, but in a modern form. I use coppersulfat mordant on aluminium plates. And there is the computer and a laser printer to produce the the etching resist. What we know as typical african fabrics is not an african tradition. Dutch people learned these techniques (wax print)  in Indonesia and brougt these colourfull printed fabrics to Africa.
Isn´t that globalisation?
