Arts and Cultural Centre

invites you to a private viewing of woodblock prints

Ricefield is collaborating with Glasgow Print Studio to bring to Glasgow an exhibition of the remarkable woodblock prints of Chen Qi.

Chen Qi is one of China’s leading contemporary printmakers; he has exhibited extensively throughout the world. As a relatively young artist, he is also the professor of Fine Art at Beijing University. His total command of tone using this medium, make him a master of Chinese traditional water-based printmaking. Chen Qi uses distinctive Chinese icons extensively in his woodblock prints. Each of his works reflects the simple, elegant and tranquil elements of traditional Chinese painting.
