Kiyomizudera pagoda, Kyoto, Japan

Iconic Japanese temple


Japanese temples have a special tranquility and are surrounded by beautifully curated landscapes. Using numerous layers of screen printing, I have built up a painterly image to convey the stillness and beauty I found there. Gold leaf has then been applied to the prints, as it is applied to the temples themselves, to purify and protect them from negativity.

9 colour screen print with gold leaf printed on 30x40cm paper from an edition of 50.
