“Anchor Stone”


Hiroki Morinoue’s woodcut “Anchor Stone” captures the reflections on water and the play of light on the stones lying beneath it’s surface. Morinoue lives in Hawaii and his work comes from observations of his environment. The composition of “Anchor Stone” breaks the images into abstract patterns reminiscent of kimono fabrics. Morinoue’s skill in cutting the intricate woodblocks and the overlaying of the colored inks and grain of the woodblocks, creates a rich, fabric-like weave of texture. “Anchor Stone” has been printed in an edition of 30 impressions, plus proofs, on white Thai Mulberry paper 12¼ x 50¼”.
