Seiko Tachibana. Fractal.
19 May - 10 July 21
Northern Print is pleased to present an exhibition of intaglio prints by Seiko Tachibana. This is the first solo exhibition of Tachibana’s work in the UK.
Seiko Tachibana’s intaglio prints have a poetic beauty that explores the essential patterns of life. With delicate repeated marks and richly hued ‘blooms’, the images suggest both a world in microcosm as well as the immensity of the universe. The technical skill, poise and profound beauty of these works shows the traditional qualities of Japanese printmaking which continue to captivate today.
Seiko describes her work:
‘Many great minds have been captivated by the concept of a single unifying principle that governs the all that is our universe, a principle in which all things are connected by a universal truth. While we often associate this inquiry with the sciences and philosophy, it is also an important influence in the arts.’
The exhibition presents a number of prints and artist books. All the works in the exhibition are available for sale, alongside a number of other unframed works by Seiko.
You can browse and purchase a large selection of Seiko's prints from Northern Print here.
Northern Print is a member of the Own Art scheme and can arrange interest free loans for the purchase of these prints. All profit from gallery sales goes back into Northern Print which is a registered charity.
Our online Zoom printmaking demonstration with Seiko live from The Kala Art Institute is however still going ahead at 7pm GMT on Thurs 3 Dec. You can find out more and purchase a ticket here.
