This image is the first of the ‘Irezumi’ series – Dirt & Dust, 2021
Irezumi is the Japanese word for tattoo. The back of the tattooed girl shows a dense floral pattern, almost like a veil hanging from her shoulders.
After I used black wax crayon to transfer the carving onto thin rice paper.
Black wax crayon rubbing transferred from the carving block ‘Irezumi’ – Dirt & Dust’.
The carving is made from a London sourced cedar wood.
The image is signed by the artist.
The frame is an antique dark wood frame.
