pristine condition, is part of a limited edition of 40, and looks

His prints are very interesting, as he achieves the organic, flowing
feeling of a painting, which is not so easy to do in woodblock.

*East* - the second in our Cardinal Directions Series Print Deadline
April 15, 2010



The [Baren] Council is looking for a 'Research Assistant' to step
forward and begin the task of organizing a [Baren] 'collection' of
information on this particular corner of woodblock print history.

In a nutshell, your mission would be a three-part one:
1) you will establish a methodology for a collection of images/data on
this field. As we have seen, there is a lot of raw information out
there, and we could simply start 'scooping' the stuff into folders on
the site, but such an 'accumulation' would be of no use
2) Once the structure is in place, you will get out there on the 'net
and 'gather' as much as possible. The links posted to Baren recently
will be a good starting place, but there is almost certainly a lot more
out there to be gleaned.
3) You will establish a new section on the Baren website where the data
can be viewed. We have an installation of Movable Type on the site
already, and this could be used to create a 'blog' type of layout (page
for each artist, etc.), but that is only one possibility, and are open
to your input and ideas on this.
If you have the particular skill set required for this:

[Baren] Council

In the UK I read one online art newsletter which includes printmakers and one hardcopy print magazine called Printmaking today You could try sending an article about yourself, the story and the printmaking technique and slip in the interesting opportunity. The current issue of the latter has an article about Jason Oliver being an artist-in-residence at Nagasawa Art Park, on Awaji Island, Japan learning Moku Hanga. He works in the print room of London's Royal Academy Schools so might be a potential customer!

As I understand it, your series will demonstrate the various skills and techniques of the method, so I would guess that Printmaking art schools such as the Royal College of art in London and Print collecting museums such as the British Museum (and their international equivalents) could well find this series a 'must have' as a teaching aid for collectors and training artists. A flyer either online or in the post may attract attention.

Good luck
