Yuji Hiratsuka and Contemporary Impressions
Subscribers to Contemporary Impressions, a journal of the American Print Alliance, receive a free original print with their yearly subscription. It is a terrific way to collect art.
This year's print is a color etching with chin colle from a suite of 16 created by internationally-known artist, Yuji Hiratsuka. Incredibly, each of the 16 etchings has been printed in an edition of 75. What a lot of printing!
The fall/winter 2008 issue of Contemporary Impressions includes an interview with Mr. Hiratsuka, who has created his own unique approach to color etching. In the interview, the artist describes his technique as well as the meaning and motivation behind his imagery.
